During Hungary's World Cup qualifier against England at Wembley on Tuesday, hooligans fought with police and stewards.

Trouble erupted in a group of 1,000 Hungarians in one part of Wembley only seconds after the game began.

Hundreds of Hungary supporters surged at the stewards, forcing them to flee before police with batons arrived.

After many minutes of fighting, riot police were ultimately able to restore order in the stands and stadium concourse.

Police had taken extra security precautions in an attempt to avoid clashes with the notoriously violent Hungarian ultras, but their efforts to maintain order were plainly ineffective.

When England players took a knee before kick-off, Hungary's fans booed and a banner denouncing the anti-racism gesture was held up.

This isn't the first time Hungary fans have caused trouble during their qualifying matches against England.

Racist shouts directed against Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham disrupted England's 4-0 victory in Budapest in September.
