Hungary Fans Clash With Police After England Match At Wembley

The early stages of the World Cup qualifying tie were overshadowed by fights in the away end.

Fights have broken out between Hungary fans and police during the World Cup qualifying match against England at Wembley on Tuesday.

Police and stewards gathered around one of the entrances to the stand as they clashed with fans, who pushed up the stairs and managed to keep the security forces back.

Images emerged of police using batons as the away fans rushed towards them.

What has been said?

The Metropolitan police issued a statement on Twitter about the incident, stating that it began as they attempted to arrest a spectator for a racist incident.

It read: "Shortly after the start of tonight's match at Wembley, officers entered the stand to arrest a spectator for a racially aggravated public order offence following comments made towards a steward.

"As the officers made the arrest, minor disorder broke out involving other spectators. Order was quickly restored and there have been no further incidents at this stage."

The Football Association (FA), meanwhile, has promised to investigate.

A statement read: "We are aware of an incident in the away section during tonight's FIFA 2022 World Cup Qualifier at Wembley Stadium. We will be investigating and will report the incident to FIFA."
