English Fans Want Flags Back in Return For Passport and Phone After Fight With Russian Supporters

English Fans Want Flags Back in Return For Passport and Phone After Fight With Russian Supporters

One England fan ended up with a new passport and phone after getting into a fight with a Russian supporter earlier this week.

And he insists he won’t return the passport or phone to the Russian owner until several English flags stolen in the clash are returned.

Violence between English and Russian supporters has marred the start of Euro 2016, with both countries threatened with serious sanctions if it continued.

The worst of it centred around their Group B clash on Saturday in Marseille as hundreds of supporters clashed, leaving a sea of destruction around the city and several needing medical treatment.

Russia have since been given a suspended disqualification from the tournament – UEFA taking a tough stance on the fighting and leaving the country in no doubt that further violence will see them thrown out.

The Russian supporters will have to go home at one stage during the competition and this one fan might find it difficult without a phone or passport.

Several tweets were posted to an account yesterday which claims to be run by a group of English fans.

In those posts, messages are directed at a Russian Ultras account telling them that the Three Lions supporters are in possession of a Russian passport and phone after a fight.

And the supporters insists they won’t be returned until several English flags are returned:

There are more tweets posted from the account, with the English fan claiming to have won a fight against the Russians before ending up in possession of the passport and phone.
