MORE OF FANS STORY: England fans clashed with Czech police in Prague on Friday (October 11) ahead of their match in Group A of the Euro 2020 qualification campaign as the hosts seek to catch England at the top of the group.

Fears of fan violence ahead of the fixture materialised when England fans gathered in the centre of the city to drink and savour the atmosphere ahead of the fixture.

Riot police kept a close eye on fans, before charging one group as night fell, using sound grenades and police dogs to keep them in check.

One England fan called those who had got themselves into trouble with the police 'idiots'.

England have won their first four games while the Czech Republic - who have played one more game - sit three points behind England in the second automatic qualification spot.

Kosovo sit a single point behind the Czechs.

England have been unbeaten in their last 43 qualification games, their last defeat at the hands of Ukraine on October 10, 2009 - almost exactly a decade ago.
