England fans baton-charged by Portuguese police

English football lurched back to the bad old days on Wednesday night when hundreds of supporters were baton-charged by riot police after hurling bottles and goading officers at a fan zone in Porto

Police condemned what they called “completely unacceptable” behaviour from fans which included smashing a car window, forcing roads to be closed to traffic and singing derogatory songs about the Pope.

Three England fans were reportedly arrested


Kick out these brits. Portugal does not need these uncivilised uneducated trash. Brexit is a blessing. Now keep these petty islanders out of our country
