Euro 2016: Russia fans deported from France

By Daily Sports on June 14, 2016

Groups of Russia fans are being deported from France after repeated scenes of violence at Euro 2016.

French police blamed 150 “well-trained” Russian hooligans who had been able to evade arrest for clashes in Marseille in the run-up to Saturday’s 1-1 draw between England and Russia.

Six English fans were jailed on Monday for their roles in the disorder.

Alexandr Shprygin, head of the Russian Union of Supporters, said 29 fans were being escorted to the airport.

France Prime Minister Manuel Valls said some football fans “cannot stay on national territory”.

Thirty five people have been injured – four seriously, and most of them England fans – while a total of 20 people have been arrested after three days of disorder in the French city.

Football Association chairman Greg Dyke expressed “serious concerns” about security in Lille, where England fans and Russian supporters are set to gather over the next three days.

England fans are likely to travel to Lille ahead of Thursday’s match against Wales in the nearby smaller town of Lens, while Russia play Slovakia in the city on Wednesday.

Shprygin claimed he and 28 other representatives of fan groups had been held near Cannes and put on a bus. (BBC)
