VIDEO: Russian hooligans attack Welsh and English fans in Lille

Russian hooligans have once more attacked English fans with trouble hitting the streets of Lille today.

One man - believed to be either English or Welsh - has been pictured lying on the ground outside a bar after the Russian Ultras threw missiles.

While Russia have been threatened with expulsion from the competition should there be anymore trouble inside the stadiums from their fans, UEFA is powerless to impose sanctions on their behaviour outside the grounds.

England will play Wales in Lens on Thursday while Russia face Slovakia in Lille on Wednesday and with the cities just 23 miles apart, there are concerns that Russian hooligans will again target the English following the serious violence that engulfed Marseille last week.

Both English and Welsh fans have been in jovial form all day in the French city, drinking and singing together.
