Hungary fans clash with police during World Cup Qualifier against England at Wembley | Football News

Hungary fans clashed with police at Wembley during Tuesday’s World Cup Qualifier against England.

Jeers could be heard from the away end as the England players took the knee to show their support for the fight against racism before kick-off.

Clashes then broke out in the away section, with police using batons in an attempt to control the crowd before appearing to be forced into the concourse.

After Hungary took the lead with a penalty in the 24th minute, a flare was let off in the away end.

Sky Sports’ Peter Smith, at Wembley, said: “Someone in the Hungary section held up an anti-taking-a-knee banner as the players made those symbolic gestures.

“In contrast, the England supporters applauded the players’ action.”

Last month’s meeting between the sides in Budapest was marred by racist abuse aimed at England duo Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham.

FIFA ordered Hungary to play two home FIFA competition matches behind closed doors, one suspended for two years, following the racist behaviour of their supporters.
