Opposing fans were dressed in their countries colours - red vs white - as the rivalry seemingly boiled over into a brawl.

The footage was captioned: "England V Wales pre match in Tenerife," and viewers were clearly not impressed by what they saw.

"What a terrible advert for British football. Grown men fighting over the result of 22 men kicking a ball around a pitch of grass," one person commented.

Another Brit said: "Why do we always embarrass ourselves abroad? Are other Europeans like this in their holiday resorts?"

"Shock England fans causing trouble. If i didn't see this clip I would never have believed it," a third person sarcastically tweeted.

A fourth person said: "Now go to Qatar and try that and we wonder why they refused to sell alcohol."

LADbible have contacted Spanish police for comment.

In an unrelated incident, a Wales supporter in Qatar has died, according to a fans' group.

The Wales Football Supporters’ Association’s fan embassy wrote on Twitter: “Unfortunately we have lost one of the Red Wall yesterday in Qatar, our sincere condolences go out to his son here in Doha and his family back in Wales.

“May he rest in peace.”

Noel Mooney, chief executive of the Football Association of Wales (FAW), also wrote on Twitter: “So sorry to hear that one of our supporters has passed away here.”

He added: “Our condolences go to the family and of course we are here to support however we can.”

The Welsh FA named the fan as Kevin Davies.

In a tweet, it said: “Mae CBDC yn cydymdeimlo efo teulu a ffrindiau Kevin Davies.

“Our deepest condolences from everyone at the Football Association of Wales. Our thoughts are with Kevin’s family and friends at this sad time.

“The FAW is in contact with Kevin’s family to help in whatever way we can.”

England and Wales are set to face off in the final Group B game on Tuesday (29 November).

Group B current standings:

  1. England - 4 points - played 2 - goal difference of 4
  2. Iran - 3 points - played 2 - goal difference of -2
  3. USA - 2 points - played 2 - goal difference of 0
  4. Wales - 1 point - played 2 - goal difference of -2

As you can see from the table above, Wales will need to beat England, and hope the other match between USA and Iran goes their way, if they want any chance of qualifying.

England's goal difference means they've pretty much already qualified but will want a win, in order to finish top of the group.
