Euro 2020: Watch The Horrific Moment Italy Fans Receive Hard Punches From Angry Mob
Few minutes after the dramatic Euro final that saw the Italian team clinch the trophy through penalties, England and Italy fans clashed on the streets of London throwing punches and kicks at each other while others scampered for safety.
A video shared to social media shows a fight break out last night (July 11) as one football fan draped in an Italian flag brawls with a group of other men. Despite some members of the public seemingly trying to calm the situation and hold those involved back, they eventually revert to more pushing and punching.
A total of 49 people were arrested by Met Police before 2am on Monday morning, while 19 officers were injured as they worked to control violent crowds.
The Met Police tweeted: “Thank you to the tens of thousands of fans who had good spirits and behaved responsibly.
“We made 49 arrests during the day for a variety of offences.
“We will have officers on hand throughout the night.”
They added: “Frustratingly, 19 of our officers were injured while they confronted volatile crowds.
“This is wholly unacceptable. A big thanks to officers across London and our blue light colleagues for their part in keeping Londoner’s safe and moving tonight.”
It’s unclear where exactly in London the fight happened.
