It’s unclear what sparked the violent brawl, which saw England fans retreat into a bar to avoid being pelted by glass.

Clips of the clash spread across X, formerly Twitter, with one user writing: “It’s kicking off in Dortmund.”

A similar fight took place weeks ago before England’s Euros curtain raiser against Serbia, which left an English fan with blood pouring from a head wound.

Sources at the scene said a group of yobs appeared to have started chaos in a restaurant near the venue city of Gelsenkirchen five hours before kick-off.

It comes after cops closed in on a crazed axeman brandishing a Molotov cocktail near a busy Euros fan zone was caught on camera.

Shocking footage showed the suspect with a golden pickaxe as cops draw their guns and deploy pepper spray moments before his arrest on the streets of Hamburg.

Cops shot the axeman and sealed off the Reeperbahn strip, not far from where thousands of Dutch supporters were gathering to watch their match against Poland.

Police feared he intended to set it off in the middle of the crowd of supporters, according to German news outlet Bild.

A statement from Hamburg Police on X read: “There is currently a major police operation in St Pauli.

“According to initial findings, a person threatened police officers with a pickaxe and an incendiary device.

“The officers then used their firearms.

“The attacker was injured and is currently receiving medical treatment.”

Police say the attack had “no football connection” and the perpetrator was attacking alone at the time.

Meanwhile, shots were heard during the heated Italy-Albania match, leaving a 23-year-old seriously injured.

The man was hit in his leg and arm in the Berlin district of Moabit, as cops armed with submachine guns launched an urgent manhunt for the attacker.

Six shots were fired on Rathenower Strasse, near Turmstrasse, opposite the Tiergarten district courtBild reports.
