WATCH: Fans clash with police inside Wembley

WATCH: Fans clash with police inside Wembley in England-Hungary draw

October 12, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Supporters of the away team were involved in a scuffle with the stadium police during Tuesday's World Cup qualifying game.

Tuesday's meeting between England and Hungary was marred by an off-pitch incident involving fans of the visitors and the police and stewards stationed inside Wembley for the night's Group I World Cup qualifier. The away supports clashed with the law enforcers during the early stages of the match and with one arrest is said to have been made for 'racially aggravated public order offence'.

Prior to kick-off, some Hungary fans jeered when the England players took the knee to show their support for the fight against racism . One individual was seen holding a white banner with a "no-kneeling" insignia in the middle. Relatively, England fans responded to the taunts of the spectators at the visiting end with chants which called out the behavior. Shortly after, an intense brawl broke out, with the police using batons in their attempt to keep the crowd in check.

Watch:

A statement released by the Metropolitan Police in the aftermath revealed that one fan had been arrested for a 'racially aggravated public order offence following comments made to a steward'. It reads as follows: 

"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."

Meanwhile, the clash between England and Hungary ended in a stalement following the incident. The host conceded the game's opener in the 24th minute via a penalty but soon equalized through John Stone in the 37th minute. With the result, the Three Lions are still first in Group I with 20 points form eight outings - three points above second-placed Poland.
