You see all these Putin’s children ehn? One single chill like this, they don’t have. And you know there’s  none more chavvy or ready for a fight than the English football fans. UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against both Russia and England after violence marred their Euro 2016 opening fixture in France.

The governing body is taking action over crowd disturbances, apparent racist behaviour and the setting off of fireworks during the Group B showdown, Sky Sports News reports.

Reports indicate that a group of Russian supporters rushed their England counterparts after the fulltime whistle of the 1-1 draw in Marseille, an incident that is said to have left a number of fans hospitalised. England did not back away from the fight either because football.

A statement from the country’s sports minister Vitaly Mutko suggests that he anticipated the disciplinary action, although he added that Russia will launch its own investigation into the disturbances.

“We will have a fine from UEFA, so I understand. We behaved incorrectly,” the R-Sport news agency quotes him as saying, adding that he believes there were “many nuances” to the incident.

Both UEFA and the English Football Association have issued statements condemning the violence.
