Russian Federation charges two England fans with unruly behaviour

Russian Federation charges two England fans with unruly behaviour

HARRY Kane has vowed that this England team will do their utmost to exorcise the ghosts of past tournaments and finally make the country proud of the national team.

Russian media said authorities used planes in the months before the game to spray the area around the stadium, which is next to the massive Volga river, with a special substance created to kill them off, but the effort was only partially successful.

Russian Federation on Monday (Jun 18) charged two drunk England fans with minor offences over their unruly behaviour on a train to the city of Volgograd where their national team are to play Tunisia.

Historians believe the Soviet defence of the city, on the banks of the Volga river, was a major turning point for the Allies against Hitler's forces in the Second World War. What happened in France two years ago was hard for everyone to take.

Fabian Delph revealed he knows who will start for England against Tunisia on Monday.

'As a fan I've been to watch numerous England games as a boy - they're passionate, everyone loves the game.

At least 600,000 foreign tourists are expected to visit Russian Federation during the most watched event in the world. Sources say the driver pleaded with people at the scene, claiming he did not mean to hit the football fans.

But London-born Camilla Croxton, in Russian Federation for the first time for the tournament, had only kind words for the country and the locals she had met.

"At 1-1 we had a plan to. keep probing but not get caught on the counter-attack", said England manager Gareth Southgate. "But from the first day I walked out people have just said to me "we are your friend" and 'thank you for coming to Russian Federation'".

The English Football Association has agreed to a similar version of its official flag after being approached by Cunningham and the Three Lions Pride group she leads.

After the goal, England lost its collective mind, as you would expect. "It's not good having one player who the others look to when things aren't going right". "Winning the first game is always massive".

"As a striker, first and foremost you have to have that little bit of selfishness when you are in front of goal".
