One man threw a wild uppercut, which thankfully did not connect, before they were separated.

Another supporter lobbed beer towards the fighters as their fellow fans tried to keep the peace.

A group of England fans were attacked by Netherlands supporters ahead of last night’s game.

Five were hurt during the skirmish as Dutch yobs started a brawl outside a restaurant.

Tables were upturned an orange-shirted attacker was seen hurling a chair.

Trouble flared near the start of the spectacular Dutch “fan walk” to the stadium as tens of thousands of revellers passed the eatery.

Officials confirmed five people had suffered minor injuries and at least one Dutch fan was caught on camera being detained by riot cops who quickly surrounded the scene.

A spokesman for the UK’s Football Police Unit said: “We are aware of some reports and videos circulating of disorder in Dortmund.

“It appears that there have been several instances of Dutch fans attacking England fans in bars and attempting to steal flags.

“We understand this has resulted in minor injuries to five people. We are also aware that in addition to the tens of thousands of Dutch fans there to enjoy the game, there are groups of risk supporters who have travelled to Dortmund from the Netherlands.

“Our officers are at the location supporting German colleagues. We would advise supporters to be aware of their surroundings and seek areas where there is a German Police presence.”

The semi-final looked to be heading for extra-time before super-sub Ollie Watkins scored a dramatic late winner.

It sparked wild celebrations in Dortmund and at fan events all over the country.

Even Dutchman Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink could not help celebrating with his fellow coaches.

Jude Bellingham showed incredible sportsmanship after the game as he consoled Netherlands stars.

England’s controversial penalty

By Mark Halsey

HARRY KANE was gifted a penalty by controversial referee Felix Zwayer.

If England had been on the receiving end of that decision, we would have been absolutely fuming.

The German official, previously banned for six months for his part in a match-fixing scandal, should not have been sent to the pitchside monitor by VAR Bastian Dankert.

Both Denzel Dumfries and Kane had their feet in the air as England’s captain got his shot away.

It was just a clash of legs and certainly NOT a ‘clear and obvious error’.
Once Zwayer went over to the monitor, we knew what was going to happen.

He is an excellent referee but we have seen that none of the officials seem mentally tough enough to stick with their original call.

I know some people will argue Dumfries was late to the tackle and it would have been a free-kick elsewhere on the pitch.

But it is a contact sport and it’s natural that there will be a coming together in instances like that.

Aside from the penalty award, Zwayer had a good game.

There were fears decisions would go against England because of Jude Bellingham’s previous comments about Zwayer.

Bellingham was fined £34,000 in 2021 for blaming Zwayer and his match-fixing past for Borussia Dortmund’s 3-2 defeat to Bayern Munich.

But Zwayer was right to caution Bellingham for his reckless challenge on Stefan de Vrij in the second half.
