Russian Ultras fly 8,000 miles to hold secret meetings with Argentinian thugs to plot World Cup attacks on England fans
RUSSIAN and Argentinian hooligans held a secret summit in Buenos Aries to plot bloody attacks on England fans at the World Cup this summer.
A delegation of Ultras from St. Petersburg and Moscow flew 8,000 miles to south America for the clandestine meeting with ruthless 'Barras Brava' brawlers.
Their mission was to form an alliance of violence whose sole aim is to target those Three Lions fans brave enough to travel to Russia in June and July.
The news will send chills down the spines of those England fans still haunted by the memories of the ruthless Russians at the European Championships in France.
Sickening street attacks on England fans by hammer and iron bar-wielding thug left 35 people injured, including two seriously.
Earlier this week a hooligan wanted for the “attempted homicide” of Portsmouth man Andrew Bache, 51, in Marseilles was arrested following a manhunt.
The news of the hooligan conference comes after it was revealed thousands of supporters are planning to snub the World Cup over fears of attacks.
The first meeting - at the end of January - was reportedly hosted by Rafael Di Zeo, the notorious leader of 'La 12', the Boca Juniors Barra Brava, reports as.com
Further talks involved Ultras from San Lorenzo, Vélez Sarsfield and Nueva Chicago.
In these discussions it has been reported the Russians reached even agreed to arrange accommodation, transport and defence lawyers for their new pals.
The Russians and Argentinians reportedly worked together on a strategic plan to isolate and then attack the English.
The English team will be based in St. Petersburg while Argentina will be in Moscow, where the "Barra Brava" (the name for organised supporters in Latin America) will have the support of the Dinamo fans.
England, Argentina and Russia have avoided each other in the group stage, but there is a potential clash in the city of Novogorov, where Argentina face Croatia on June 21 and three days later England will play Panama.
