Police are investigating the video and looking for the football fans

British Police are working with the Football Association to identify men filmed performing Nazi salutes in a Russian bar.

They can also be heard shouting “Sieg Heil.”

It’s believed the video was recorded in Volgograd, the city where England played their opening World Cup game on Monday against Tunisia.

The British polices’ investigations lead for the World Cup, detective superintendent Caroline Marsh, said: “The abhorrent behaviour seen in this video is completely unacceptable and it will not be tolerated.”

“Our investigation team in the UK is already making swift inquiries to identify those involved and will seek to take all appropriate action against them.”

A spokesman for the FA said: “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.”
