THREE England fans needed hospital treatment after their group came under attack from Ukrainian hooligans wielding knives ahead of tonight’s fixture in Kiev.

One suffered a stab wound, one a head injury and the other severe bruising in the fracas outside a bar on Sunday night.

No arrests were made and the head of the British police delegation in Kiev, Rachel Barber, warned travelling supporters to “enjoy themselves but without upsetting anybody”.

She added: “We’re aware of what happened last night and we will be going round most of the major bars, including this particular one, to make sure there are no problems.”
