Hundreds of England fans ran for their lives as they were attacked by Russian hooligans inside the stadium in Marseille after the England - Russia match on Saturday.
An entertaining match ended with a 1-1 draw and a point to both England and Russia on Saturday night.
But the safety on the stands in Marseille is now sharply criticised by commentators on site.
Before the match there were ugly scenes and mass brawls in the city between Russian, English and French supporters. And the tumult continued inside the Stade Velodrome after the match finished.
- What we saw after the match gives the impression that where there was control of security in Paris, but there was no control in Marseille. Russian fans rushed towards the English section. English supporters ran for their lives, said the Norwegian commentator Øyvind Alsaker about the scenes that occurred after the match.
- Horrible that they have no guards between the fans, when they know what has been happening all day down town. It is simply madness. Terrified people rushed out and tried to jump over the fences because they had Russians at their heels. It was actually shocking to see.
According to eyewitnesses interviewed by TV2 outside the stadium, the Russian hooligans even beat children when they stormed the England fans inside the stadium.
