The chaotic scenes broke out at the Greenman Pub and Hotel on Dagmar Avenue ahead of the match, which ended in a 3-3 draw.

A large group of men wearing masks and scarves made their way into the pub's beer garden and began assaulting England supporters, leading to punches and projectiles between thrown between the two sets of fans.

It is alleged that the masked group of hooligans, some of whom were seen wearing England hats, were in fact Germany supporters who had travelled over for Monday's match at Wembley.

"We initially saw a group of people running through the car park in all black, with scarves and balaclavas covering their faces wearing England hats, before hearing shouting and [seeing England fans] running in all directions," eye-witness David Wilson-Turner told the Evening Standard.

"Hearing that some had weapons, people were then trying to get away from it, being scattered inside, round the back of the pub and across the beer garden, while others were trying to run towards them to get them away.

"It all happened very quickly, and in less than five minutes the Germans who had ran towards the pub were gone. A small number...had been struck by either the Germans directly or by things that had been thrown, some with blood over their faces and jackets.

"As we left around 15 minutes later, there were people being attended to."

Metropolitan Police believe the masked supporters were indeed Germany fans and have confirmed that four arrests have been made in relation to the disorder.

"At 17:50hrs on Monday, 26 September a group of approximately 100 males, many wearing masks, approached a pub in Dagmar Avenue, Wembley through an alley leading towards the car park,” a Met Police spokesperson told The Sun.

"While a number of the group were wearing England hats and scarves, it is believed they were German 'fans'.

"The group entered the beer garden of the pub and began assaulting customers, most of whom were in the area to attend the England vs Germany match.

"Punches and projectiles including traffic cones were thrown. Officers responded and the group fled.

"The disorder lasted for around two minutes. A number of people sustained head and facial injuries.

"We are also aware of three people with serious leg, wrist and thumb injuries. None of those injured are believed to be in a life-threatening condition.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson added: “We were called at 5.59pm today (Monday) to reports of an incident in Dagmar Avenue, Wembley.

“We sent a number of resources including two ambulance crews, a medic in a response car and an incident response officer.

"We treated five people at the scene before taking them to hospital."
