‘Too dangerous’ – fans fear 2018 World Cup trouble
Fears are growing that the 2018 World Cup Finals in Russia will be marred by hooliganism.
Hardcore thugs from Russia went on the rampage during Euro 2016, with England fans the victims in Marseille.
One Russian MP even went so far recently as to suggest that fighting among supporters should be a sport in itself.
With such worrying pronouncements coming from establishment figures, will fearful English football fans opt to stay away from the 2018 tournament?
Crystal Davis, Mike Newell and Lucas Chomicki spoke to supporters on their way to the London Stadium for the West Ham v Chelsea match in the Premier League to gauge their opinions.
