Qatar 2022: Hungary fans and police clashed at Wembley Stadium

Fans of Hungary's senior male national football team clashed with the police at Wembley Stadium in London at the start of Tuesday's 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against England.

FIFA ordered Hungary to play two home FIFA competition matches behind closed doors, one suspended for two years, following racist behavior by supporters.

The fan base was again under scrutiny in London, with the traveling supporters booing as England players took the knee before kick - off.

Clashes then broke out in the away section, with police seemingly using batons in an attempt to control the crowd before appearing to be forced into concourse.

"Few minutes after the start of the match officers entered the stand to arrest a spectator for a racially aggravated public order offence in relation to comments directed towards a steward", a metropolitan police stated.

Police said "minor disorder" came after officers attempted to arrest a spectator for racially abusing a steward.

The match later end peacefully, with a score of 1 - 1
