About 3000 English hooligans were asked to surrender their passports ahead of this world cup because they were on the black list of authorities for causing problems at stadia repeatedly. I don't think any other nation had to take such extreme measures.
I appreciate British authorities for that step however. But let's not moralise in this. Pot kettle black.
What stadia have English football fans caused problems at in the last 20 years?
The negative publicity sorrounding English fans at France 98 and in Euro 2000 (Charleroi iic) were because of rioting away from the ground. Off the top of my head, I can't recall any more recent incidents involving English fans following England abroad.
