UK police have confirmed that two England fans were arrested in Düsseldorf last night after a fight broke out at a bar.

According to footage obtained by the Daily Mail the incident occurred after some some supporters tainted German fans about their defeat to Spain earlier in the day.

Police said the arrests were made “following a small pocket of disorder, which was very swiftly dealt with.”

Estimates were of 6000 fans in the city on the Rhine last night with police saying “the vast majority were extremely well behaved.”

It was a bit rude to start this blog and not furnish you with match reports from last night’s games. So here they are.

George Graham’s France are in the semi-finals despite scoring only three times in five games: one penalty and two own-goals. Theories on a postcard please.
