Riot police have forced to intervene between England and Lithuania football supporters in tonight’s European qualifier in Vilnius.

Roy Hodgson’s side are hoping to make it 10 wins from 10 in the Group E fixture at the LFF Stadium and first-half goals from Ross Barkley and an own goal have put the visitors in the driving seat.

However the game has been marred by unrest in the stands with factions of both supporters clashing with riot police called to separate both groups in the stands.
