England fans repeatedly chanted “F*** the Pope” and were involved in minor skirmishes in the Italian city of Milan on Thursday night.
Italian Police took a softly softly approach towards the Three Lions supporters and there was barely an officer in sight in the popular Navigli canal district. There were no major incidents involving the fans but they constantly sang “F*** the Pope and the IRA” throughout the evening.
They also chanted “Ten German Bombers” and “We hate Celtic” – believed to refer to the behaviour of fans of the Glasgow club following the death of the Queen.
Missiles were thrown at a four man crew rowing on the canal and dozens of fans could be seen urinating into the water.
A couple of bars shut their doors after the incidents and the England fans headed off to other areas of the city with no further trouble.
