Yobs hurl chairs and batter each other in mass brawl as England lose Euro 2020 final against Italy

THIS is the moment violent yobs hurl chairs and batter each other during a mass brawl as England suffered a heartbreaking Euro 2020 defeat.

A small number of morons ruined a day of huge pride for millions of real fans yesterday as vicious fights broke out.

In the film, which was reportedly shot during a a viewing party in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, two men began grappling before others joined in.

Shocking footage shows the men throwing punches as women scream – before a shirtless man and a supporter in an England shirt become the first to join the fray.

Moments later, another man in a white Lions shirt rushes in while holding a bottle of beer in one hand.

The fan recording the footage then scrambles to get away from the violence as a man in a pink top launches a flying kick at one of those involved.

Another of the fighters then hoists a chair and sends it flying over brawlers' heads.

At least ten people appear to be involved as others scatter.

It comes as:

  • Harry Kane hugged wife Kate as she burst into tears after the game
  • Gareth Southgate was seen consoling players after his own penalty heartbreak in 1996
  • Zara Tindall wiped blood from her seat at Wembley after husband Mike broke up a fight
  • Brits are calling for a bank holiday to mourn England's loss – as Boris Johnson mulls it over
  • But despite it all, proud England fans say "There's always next year!"

Elsewhere, there was chaos in London amid clashes in Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square.

Some of those involved set off fireworks as riot police struggled to break up the crowds.

Shocking video shows supporters draped in flags shoving each other in the West End before a mass brawl erupted.

Cops with shields appeared to struggle to contain the mayhem, and footage captured shared on social media shows fans climbing street lamps and setting off flares.

One witness shared footage of a man apparently unconscious and lying face-up on the ground as others scrap around him.

One of his friends holds his hands aloft to try and calm the violence.

At the stadium itself, an adult man was videoed apparently belting a young boy – while another fan was kicked to the ground.

A clip posted to Twitter appears to show violence erupt at the door into the stands just moments after the game began.

This England team deserve to be lauded as heroes, not racially abused on social media.

Scotland Yard made 49 arrests while policing the Euros final.

And 19 cops were hurt during violence in London yesterday.

The vast majority of true supporters supported the Lions without trouble – but a handful of boozed-up thugs disgraced themselves on a historic day for the team.

Officers launched an urgent probe to find the ticketless football fans who stormed through Wembley Stadium's security barriers and entered the grounds just moments before the game.

Dozens of people were filmed trampling down the security cordon before running into the Club Wembley entrance, the closest point of entry from Wembley Way.

People inside the stadium tried to stop them as punches were thrown during the melee.


And there's a second probe under way after vile racist abuse was directed at Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho.

Prince William – who was at yesterday's game with wife Kate and son George – said he's "sickened" at the disgusting trolls responsible.

Gareth Southgate has told journalists the attacks are "unforgiveable" – and it's "just not what we stand for".

And Boris Johnson said: "This England team deserve to be lauded as heroes, not racially abused on social media.

"Those responsible for this appalling abuse should be ashamed of themselves."

Chief Superintendent Karen Findlay of the Met Police said: "Officers and commanders on the ground worked tirelessly yesterday to deter many who used the football as a backdrop for intoxicated violence.

"The patience, restraint and bravery, while often outnumbered, was a credit to everyone. Others should be ashamed."
