In a rather ‘normal’ scene since the Euro 2016 began about 72 hours ago in France, there was more violence on the third day of the tournament following unpleasant scenes in Marseille between England and Russia on Saturday evening.
Germany and Ukraine fans on Sunday afternoon and night clashed in the streets of Lille before and after their Euro 2016 showdown.
The video footage acquired by Greennews.ng shows clashes between supporters before the match which is the second in Group C after Poland’s victory over Northern Ireland.
French authorities say two people were injured in the clashes.
It comes after England and Russia fans brawled in the streets of Marseille on Saturday before and after the meeting between those two sides.
This development is likely to increase calls for further measures to be introduced both in and around stadia after the security was criticised in Marseille.
UEFA are concerned trouble could flare up again next week when Russia take on Slovakia in Lille on Wednesday and England face Wales in Lens on Thursday with supporters likely to converge.
A statement from European football’s governing body said: “The UEFA Executive Committee would like to express its disgust for the violent clashes which occurred in the city of Marseille.
“Such unacceptable behaviour by so-called supporters of the national teams of England and Russia has no place in football, a sport we must protect and defend.
“The UEFA Executive Committee has warned both football associations that – irrespective of any decisions taken by the independent disciplinary bodies relating to incidents inside the stadium – it will not hesitate to impose additional sanctions on the Football Association (FA) and the Russian Football Union (RFU), including the potential disqualification of their respective teams from the tournament, should such violence occur again.
“We urge both the FA and the RFU to appeal to their supporters to behave in a responsible and respectful manner.
“We would also like to publicly voice our support for the work of the French Authorities and security forces for their efforts to deliver a safe and secure tournament in challenging circumstances.”
