Sir Brian Hayes, the FA's security adviser, said in Marseilles: "There has been brawling breaking out between the English fans and local Arab youths. I condemn it, so does the Football Association."
Asked if England should pull out of the tournament, he said: "That's absolute rubbish. The England team have been training for years. They've qualified; they're here as of right. This is nothing to do with football. This is just sheer hooliganism and drunkenness."Reuse content
