Stan Collymore Films Violence in Lille From Yards Away and Shares It On Periscope

Stan Collymore Films Violence in Lille From Yards Away and Shares It On Periscope

With all the violence that’s been recently in Bordeaux and Lille it’s beginning to look like something increasingly worrying might happen to an unfortunate fan who may be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Russian hooligans have caused havoc everywhere they have went, battling with English fans ahead of their 1-1 draw on Saturday evening before storming a pub housing Welsh and English yesterday afternoon where more restaurants were trashed.

However, while it may be bad enough for us stay-at-home fans to witness, one pundit put himself right in the mix as Stan Collymore filmed the ongoing trouble and streamed it live on Periscope.

The former Liverpool star is in France to cover the Euros for talkSPORT and while filming the atmosphere among the British fans, encountered another attack from Russian casuals.

With Russia losing 2-1 to Slovakia today it appears they will be heading home early and we think we speak for everyone when we say thank goodness.
