Brawl erupts during England vs Russia soccer match (Video)

(CNN)Packs of Russian and English football fans clashed in the French city of Marseille in a third straight day of battles at the Euro 2016 championship.

Fans brawled before and after the game Saturday, forcing police in riot gear to fire tear gas to disperse crowds. Throngs lunged at one another, and hurled bottles and other objects at officers.

After the game, Russian fans charged at the section where their British counterparts sat as chaos ensued. Smoke filled the streets as panicked fans fled.

At least 31 people were injured in the clashes, four of them critically, said Mathieu Duroselle, a spokesman for Marseille police. The number included three officers who suffered slight injuries, he said.

3. They're mainly there for the bust up

A lot of them don't even go for the games, just the fight.
