A group of around football fans stormed a Wembley pub in some unsavory scenes ahead of England’s UEFA Nations League clash with Germany.
The preparation for the game was overshadowed by some unsavory scenes outside the Green Man Pub, a place frequented by fans before Three Lions games.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed the fans were wearing English hats and scarves, but it is believed they were in fact German.
The Met added that “a number of people” suffered head and facial injuries and are aware of three people who suffered serious leg, wrist and thumb injuries.
Four arrests have been confirmed to have been made in connection with the disorder.
A statement said: “At 5:50pm on Monday 26 September a group of approximately 100 men, many wearing masks, approached a pub on Dagmar Avenue in Wembley through an alley leading to the car park led.
“While some of the group wore English hats and scarves, it is believed they were German fans.
“The group entered the beer garden and began attacking customers, most of whom were in the area to watch the England v Germany game.

“Some people suffered head and facial injuries. We are also aware of three people with serious leg, wrist and thumb injuries. None of the injured are said to be in mortal danger.
“So far there have been four arrests related to the disorder.”
Meanwhile, eyewitness Luke Robinson told i: “There’s an entrance at the back of the Green Man and about 50 of them came in with masks and English scarves.
“They stormed in, hit everyone and everyone. It took a good five minutes for the police to arrive.
“Many were unwell. People lay unconscious and covered in blood on the ground. Even children – a boy as young as 13 had a bleeding nose.
“One guy was with the paramedics and was still unconscious when we left.
He added: “It’s the most important pub in England. I’ve never experienced it like this and come to every home game. We were there when England played Germany at the European Championships and there was all the trouble about the final, but this is the first time I’ve seen it that way.”
