      Seven England fans were arrested in Munich on Monday, including three for making a Nazi salute.

      More than 4,500 England fans were expected in Munich for Tuesday’s Nations League game against Germany.

       

      The other arrests included two for inciting police, one for using a flare indoors and another for urinating in public.

      There are concerns further trouble could impact the joint UK and Ireland bid to host Euro 2028, with England having to play their Nations League game against Italy on Saturday without spectators following unrest at Wembley during last summer’s Euro 2020 final against Italy.

      There were no England fans at Saturday’s Nations League defeat in Budapest, with Hungary having been ordered to play three games behind closed doors as punishment for discriminatory behaviour by their fans at Euro 2020.

      But there were more than 30,000 spectators at Puskas Arena, with the Hungarian FA having used a Uefa regulation that allows children up to 14 to attend for free if accompanied by an adult.

       

      Despite most of the crowd in Budapest being children, England players were jeered when they took a knee before the game.

        There were times in the early- to mid-00s when a Portland-Seattle derby match would get quite heated, large fights breaking out in the stadia and smaller bits of violence outside before and after matches. I must say that I did not dislike that atmosphere.

          The Portland/Seattle rivalry predates the MLS.   Goes way back before the league was formed

            Truth, there is a significant history. And, these scuffles that I mention occurred when we were in the second division.

              Timbers and Sounders were both in the NASL (top flight in the US at the time) for a while before that league collapsed.
