Photos: Teargas needed to quell hooligans during Hungary vs Iceland match

Hooliganism is starting to become more common than penalty kicks at Euro 2016.

Yet another incident of fan violence at a Euro 2016 match resulted in teargas being used to stop it – only this time it happened inside the stadium.

During Hungary’s 1-1 draw with Iceland, Hungary fans reportedly got into a violent clash with stewards that in turn required the stewards to use teargas to disperse the violent hooligans. [Photos from Sun Sport]

Fan violence and dangerous behaviour has now become an almost daily occurence. At yesterday’s Croatia-Czech Republic match, Croatian fans threw live flares onto the pitch in the middle of the game – one of which exploded into the face of a steward.
