Fight breaks out between England fans at Manchester Arena during Switzerland game

A fight breaks out between England fans at Manchester Arena during the Euros game against Switzerland on Saturday evening.

It was a night of mixed emotions for everyone inside the packed out 21,000-seater venue, which is said to be the UK’s biggest fan park for the Euros this summer.

At half time, there were scenes of fighting and chair throwing, several individuals lost their cool with each other, leading to more people getting involved.

Everyone else around them watching on in shock, leaving them to it, while one guy is seen holding onto his head, with his hands looking bloodied.

Come full time, the AO Arena was a more happier one, chants of ‘it’s coming home’, shirts off, beers in the air.

The trouble marred it for everyone there that night, and there was concern for those left hurt and injured in the trouble that took place.

England advanced to the semi-finals, where they will be the Netherlands, with a 5-3 penalty shoot-out win over Switzerland following a 1-1 draw after extra time in Dusseldorf.

Jordan Pickford saved Manuel Akanji’s spot kick, with Trent Alexander-Arnold converting the winning kick to send the England fans inside the stadium, and watching on at home wild.

England will now take on Ronald Koeman’s Netherlands for a place in the final, with the winners taking on either Spain or France on Sunday.

@dtr2527: How/why do people scrap, especially when supporting the same team?

@JimmyMacauley: You just don’t get this with Scottish or Welsh fans from the home countries. I’m glad I’m at an age to watch comfortably on the sofa. Sheer hooliganism.

@Pashaldn: It’s these kind of people who ruin a good day for others, imagine if it happened to him, he would definitely not let it slide. Absolute disgrace of act.
