There were even more England fans jokes as their team’s 1-1 Euro 2016 draw with Russia was overshadowed by violence in the stands at the Stade Vélodrome.
Russian supporters bypassed lax security to charge at their English counterparts at the final whistle, with violent clashes spilling over into the streets of Marseille before and after the match.
A “disgusted” Uefa has begun disciplinary procedures against Russia for the behaviour of their fans, which also included “racist behaviour”, setting off fireworks and firing a flare gun at England supporters.
While apparently not the aggressors in the stadium itself, there were plenty of England fans jokes as videos of bad behaviour circulated the internet:
A disappointing result for England, and a disastrous result for French plastic chairs.

You'd think England fans would stop singing about winning wars considering they can't even win a fight with a six piece garden furniture set

Every eye witness claims that England fans were attacked last night.
