WATCH – Wales and England supporters in pitched battle on the streets of Tenerife


Wales and England supporters have been involved in pitched battles on the streets of Tenerife overnight, ahead of today’s match between the two countries.

The fight is thought to have broken out in a local nightclub after which it spilled out into the street, where as many as 100 people were involved in the punch up.

Chairs were thrown and running battles took place up and down the street in an appalling display of behaviour.

It is not known how and why the fight started, who started it. Nor is it known whether anyone was injured in the fracas between Wales and England supporters.

  • Unbelievable grown men fighting over a football watching men in shorts “lol” I mean grow up! or go show off your fighting skills in Ukraine if you’re that much of a fighter. English aren’t welcome many places now.

    • I totally agree, unfortunately this kind of behaviour spoils it for normal Brits
