Despite up to 15,000 fans at England games and a clash between the Three Lions and Dragons, there was no aggro reported.

Fears of arrests for breaking Sharia laws banning drunkenness also failed to materialise.

Cheshire Chief Constable Roberts was deployed in Qatar with a team of undercover spotters

He said: “The behaviour of England and Wales was exemplary.

“There were no arrests or incidents, which is a credit to all those who travelled.

“The atmosphere at all home nations games was passionate but friendly and it would be fantastic to see this replicated back home.

“It would be wrong to entirely attribute this behaviour to the restrictions on alcohol in Qatar, but I do think it has helped to some degree.”

Across the UK there were 115 arrests, mostly in pubs.

At Russia 2018 there were three arrests.

With another 225 back home.
