Police arrested a total of 18 England fans over football-related disorder in Prague.

The men, among thousands of supporters who traveled to the city for Friday night’s Euro 2020 qualifier against the Czech Republic, have all been released.

The English supporters hurled bottles at just before 7 pm before kick-off, while local police in full riot gear returned fire with stun grenades during violent clashes near the Old Town Square.

A group of Czechs were also held after they attacked a bar in a separate incident. Czech police said a total of 31 arrests had been made on Friday night.

Until night fell, there had been little trouble, with police involvement limited to telling fans to remove flags from buildings.

But ugly scenes erupted just before 7 pm after hundreds of fans took over a small square (behind the Tyn Church), chanting and singing.
