On the eve of the match, 2 England fans were reputedly arrested in Munich city centre for giving the Nazi salute, which is prohibited in Germany.

Munich’s fire service was called out to a city centre hotel following an England fan lit a flare out of a window, which spread smoke through the building, activating the smoke alarm.

Police in the Bavarian city were also twice hallooed to a disturbance at one of the city’s famous beer cellars, where a group of around 300 England fans were convulsing the peace.

On Monday, England head coach Gareth Southgate stated he hoped the activities of travelling fans would not ‘embarrass us’.

“You feel ashamed when you hear about it,” he confessed.

Officially, England fans have been alloted 3,466 tickets for the game at the Allianz Arena, however there are fears thousands more could get in having used fake information to buy tickets from the German FA.
