One journalist, Mark Ogden, tweeted: "Less than 5 mins into the game and it’s already getting messy among the Hungary fans at Wembley."

Footage on social media shows a large group of fans scrambling around the area and clashing with police and stewards, who were at the centre of the action.

Another fan wrote: "Ugly scenes in the Hungary section at Wembley."

According to people there, England fans have been chanting towards the visiting support.

England went into the game at the top of Group D with 17 points, four clear of Albania in second and five clear of Poland in third.

Ahead of the game, manager Gareth Southgate said: "We want the squad to feel involved.

"It is important they know their value and can contribute; it wasn't a friendly [against Andorra], there were qualification points at stake and I was really pleased with the quality of the performance as well as the application.

"I have a headache and commit a crime every time I pick a team. We have such strong competition for places; there were lots of players who did their own confidence and reputation the world of good the other day and that is pleasing to see.

"We can't be a team that has a day off. We want to keep consistency, and we've had that throughout this calendar year. Everyone has pride in putting the shirt on."
