England fans attacked in UkraineESPN staff September 9, 2013 « Live County Championship coverage | Gallacher recovering well, says daughter Kirsty »
Three England supporters have been taken to hospital in Kiev after an alleged attack ahead of Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Ukraine.
Local reports suggest a group of travelling fans were targeted in a coffee shop by around 30 hooded Ukrainians armed with knives.
A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: "We are aware of incidents in Kiev involving British nationals. We are providing consular assistance."
The two sides also met at Euro 2012, a tournament which Ukraine co-hosted, but there were no reports of trouble.
Locals charged the street part of the bar - where many English fans were singing and drinking. Two were taken to hospital with head wounds.— Tim White (@TWMCLtd) September 8, 2013
