England vs. Russia Riot

It was one of the initial matches of Euro Cup 2016 played amongst England and Russia, which led to complete catastrophe. Russian football fans attacked their English rivals wearing gum shields, martial arts gloves and carrying knives. The riot, which all these preparations resulted, seemed more like a riot after an Indo-Pak match in Asia, which is to say that this wasn’t expected from the west!

So far, media reports are blaming Russian fans mostly by defending England fans, in terms of their quantity. Fans literally stabbed one another with knives, which was so insane! England fans even retorted with glass bottles being thrown on the Russian fans. This led to complete street fight amongst Russian and English football fans. Television channels even regarded the event as “an act of terror”. England won the match and seemed like it agonized the Russian spectators. Security officials eventually had to use tear gas to scatter the crowd. However, security was a major question when things looked too heated up.

French authorities are now red alert as they do not want any of the spectators to get hurt in future matches. Whereas, Euro Cup 2016 have just begun and it is so thrillingly exciting from the beginning matches only. All the fans, whether natives or foreigners in France, seem so emotionally carried away with the winning and losing of their respective country teams. It is now anticipated that full proof security measures in upcoming matches will discourage this anti-social behavior from fans’ end.
