Footage Shows England Fans Storming Past Stewards To Get Into Wembley For Euro 2020 Final

Footage has emerged showing England fans storming past stewards to get into Wembley for tonight's Euro 2020 final.

Around 60,000 fans are expected to pile into Wembley for the huge showpiece against Italy but many more gathered around the stadium as supporters soaked up the atmosphere six hours before kick-off.

It was largely joyous stuff for the most part but then there were unsavoury scenes as fans without tickets smashed through security gates in attempt to gain access to the ground.



A slew of videos circulated online showing a number of fans charging their way through and stewards absolutely powerless to stopping them.

The incidents happened at several different entrances on multiple occasions.

One clip, which has since gone viral, featured an absolute stampede of people, with police present and one steward trying to apprehend fans by kicking out at them.

Despite various videos, a statement from Wembley claimed that no fans were able to get inside the stadium.

"We are dealing with an incident that occurred at the outer security perimeter area of the stadium, with support from the police," a Wembley spokesperson said.

"Safety measures were quickly activated in the relevant areas and there were no security breaches of people without tickets getting inside the stadium."

Kick-off for the Euro 2020 final is at 8pm but millions across the nation started drinking early on to get in the mood for the momentous occasion.

England have not been in a major tournament final since 1966 when they beat Germany 4-2 to win the World Cup on home soil.
