At the beginning of September, for the fourth date of Group I of the UEFA Qualifiers with tickets to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, England had visited Hungary and beat them 4-0. The focus in the following days went through the atmosphere that was lived in the stadium and the subsequent suspensions.

Is that the footballers of Gareth Southgate's team had to listen to racist insults and be the targets of beers thrown throughout the game. The Football Association requested severe sanctions after the events and finally there were responses from the authorities.

FIFA sanctioned Hungary with fines of more than $200,000 and two closed-door games for the discriminatory insults. Last Saturday, also for Qualifying, they received Albania without an audience in what was a 1-0 victory for the visit.

This Tuesday at Wembley, the Hungarian fans again starred in reprehensible acts when they began to take fist blows with the police who were in the stadium. Minutes of tension were lived until the situation could be controlled.
