England Fans Filmed Throwing Nazi Salutes Before World Cup Match

    English soccer fans were singing an anti-Semitic song and throwing Nazi salutes in a local pub before England’s World Cup match in Volgograd, where more than a million Soviet soldiers died to stop the German blitzkrieg, The Telegraph reported.

    In a video circulating social media on Wednesday, a group of men are singing a racially offensive song about Tottenham Hotspur, an English Premier League team that has historically been associated with Jewish fans. Three men are then seen raising Nazi salutes.

    British police, who previously warned fans not to sing songs or wave flags at “sensitive” sites in Volgograd, told The Telegraph they were “making swift enquiries to identify those involved and will seek to take all appropriate action against them.”
