Serbian hooligans targeting England's Euro 2024 opener as police problems emerge


German police believe that up to 500 Serbian hooligans will attempt to spark violence ahead of their nation’s opening match of Euro 2024 against England.

Peter Both, the chief of police in Gelsenkirchen, has told The Guardian that he is hoping that his team will be able to intercept the group of Serbian supporters before they are able to clash with England fans who have travelled to Germany for the tournament.

He explained: “I guess the biggest challenge for us will be to identify violent, disruptive groups at an early stage, to separate them from peaceful and law-abiding fans, that will be our biggest challenge.”
