The English football team have got off to a great start at this year's World Cup. They got a win, albeit, in the last minute against Tunisia and face Panama this weekend in their second game.

If they win, they will be through to the second round of the World Cup.

But sadly, a portion of England's football fans have let them down at this year's tournament as confirmed footage in a bad in Russia shows Two English soccer fans making Nazi salutes and singing anti-semitic songs

English journalist, Bryan MacDonald, managed to verify that the video was two English fans and wrote on his Twitter that:

"Confirmed - two English soccer fans make Nazi salutes and sing anti-semitic songs near the site of the battle of Stalingrad (of all places) on Monday. The incident happened at the Galleriya Pub on Mira Street in Volgograd. Where England played Tunisia in the #WorldCup"

In a statement, the FA said that:

“We strongly condemn the actions of the people in this video.

“We are working with the relevant authorities, including the UK police investigations team, who are making inquiries to identify the individuals involved and take appropriate action.

“The disgraceful conduct of the individuals in this video does not represent the values of the majority of English football fans supporting the team in Russia.”
