A Tottenham Hotspur supporter has been seriously injured and several hurt during an attack in Rome on Wednesday ahead of a Europa League match against Italian giants Lazio.

According to reports, up to 50 fans of the Rome club armed with knives, baseball bats, and knuckle dusters targeted a group of English supporters who were enjoying a drink at the Drunken Ship pub in the historic Campo de Fiori in the city centre.

Authorities have declined to identify the assailants but announced on Thursday that a number of Italians who were involved in the fight had been detained.
