Balaclava wearing hooligans ‘storm Wembley pub’ ahead of England v Germany clash

Balaclava wearing hooligans took to ‘storm a Wembley pub’ ahead of the England v Germany Nations League clash on Monday night.

A large group of supporters stormed the Green Man pub, used mainly by England supporters just outside the stadium, not long before kick off.

Witnesses claim that more than 50 fans in hoods and masks forced their way into the side entrance of the popular pub that sits on top of Wembley Hill, with views overlooking the ground.

It is claimed the assailants were wearing hoods, with masks covering their faces and some wearing England scarves. A huge brawl broke out and lasted for around five minutes before police on horseback arrived, when the group of fighters fled the area.

It is claimed police were able to “grab” some of the assailants but a lot of them fled down the hill. At least two riot vans full of police arrived at the bottom of the hill to deal with the trouble.

Luke Robinson, who visits the pub before every home game, was at the venue with his son and told i he had “never seen anything like it”.

“There’s an entrance at the back of the Green Man and about 50 of them turned up wearing masks and England scarves,” Robinson, 30, said. “They stormed in, were hitting anyone and everyone. It was going on for a good five minutes before the police arrived.

“A lot of people were in a bad way. People were on the floor, unconscious, covered in blood. Even kids — one lad no older than 13 had a bleeding nose.”

After the incident people stayed drinking around the edges while paramedics treated the injured. Robinson stayed in the pub for around half an hour after the incident. “One guy was with the paramedics and still unconscious when we left,” Robinson said.

He added: “It’s the main England pub. I’ve never seen it like that before and I come to every home game. We were there when England played Germany in the Euros and when there was all the trouble around the final, but this is the first time I’ve seen it like it.”

Robinson said his son was “petrified” of the incident.

One person wrote on Twitter: “Just having a few casual pints in the green man and all of a sudden 100 German come storming in, armed with weapons, attacking kids and elderly women.”

@3LionsPodcast wrote: “Not a pretty sight at the Green Man, England fans enjoying themselves as usual, approx 100 German hooded, masked hooligans ambushed a family pub, people injured, police on horses arrive. Flags stolen. Children in the garden too frightened. Scary.”

Another added: “An experience tonight like no other, and not because of where I am.

“At The Green Man pub, a group of around 100 Germans came armed with machetes and knuckle dusters.

“Thankfully me and my friends were inside but I hope all who were outside at the time are safe now.”

A statement read: “At 5:50pm on Monday 26th of September a group of approximately 100 males, many wearing masks, approached a pub in Dagmar Avenue in Wembley through an alley leading towards the car park.

“Whilst a number of the group were wearing England hats and scarfs it’s believed they were German fans.

“The group entered the beer garden and began assaulting customers, most of whom were in the area to attend the England v Germany match.

“Punches and projectiles, including traffic cones were thrown. Officers responded and the group fled. The disorder lasted for around two minutes.

“A number of people sustained head and facial injuries. We are also aware of three people with serious leg, wrist and thumb injuries. None of those injured are believed to be in a life-threatening condition.

“There have been four arrests so far in relation to the disorder.”

@mark_t0898: will also note their entire tactic is to do damage before people come back at them, then run off to avoid police/being outnumbered.
