Fans at Euro 2016 – level 2

21-06-2016 15:00

Thousands of football fans continue to arrive in France for the Euro 2016 tournament. There were scuffles between England and Russia supporters in Lille in northern France.

The government drafted in thousands of extra police officers to keep the crowds under control. People will also limit the sales of alcohol before the matches.

Difficult words: scuffle (a short fight), draft in (bring in).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
