THE Football Association has strongly condemned the disturbances in Sevilla ahead of the Nations League match between Spain and England tonight.

Riot police were forced to intervene to disperse the crowds after trouble flared in the Andalucian capital last night (Sunday).

The incidents were reported in the Maestranza area after the fans, many of them drunk, allegedly throw bottles and other objects against the balconies of blocks of flats.


The FA has vowed to sanction any supporter found to be responsible.

A spokesperson said: “We condemn the unacceptable behaviour witnessed in Seville. We urge those following the team to respect our hosts and act in a responsible manner.

“The FA will work in partnership with the UK Football Policing Unit to help identify those involved and we will sanction any England Supporters’ Travel Club member found to be responsible for disorder.”

In other footage posted by El Desmarque TV on YouTube, groups of hooligans can be seen vandalising cars and intimidating motorists.

Pleas were issued by the British police for travelling England fans to behave themselves on their travels in Spain, adding it would be “incredibly disheartening” to witness the scenes of England’s last visit to Spain in 2015.

England’s previous visit to Spain was blemished by the outbreak of numerous alcohol-fuelled brawls amongst England followers.

There were no reports of any arrests or serious injuries.
