England fans filmed making Nazi salutes at World Cup
The English Football Association has condemned a video purportedly showing British fans at the World Cup performing Nazi salutes and singing antisemitic songs.
The videos posted on Twitter and identified as being taken at a pub in Volgograd, where England played Tunisia on Monday, and were shared on social media by former England player Stan Collymore, now a broadcaster.
The Telegraph reported that the incident occurred ahead of England’s 2-1 win over Tunisia in Volgograd on June 18.
“We strongly condemn the actions of the people in this video. We are working with the relevant authorities, including the UK Police investigations team, who are making enquiries to identify the individuals involved and take appropriate action.”
The governing body added that “the disgraceful conduct of the individuals in this video does not represent the values of the majority of English football fans supporting the team in Russia.”
The clip has also been denounced in Russia, where it was widely shared on social media.
