Russian fans nabbed before Greece-Russia

Polish police said Monday they had detained 72 Russian football fans suspected of hooliganism as a preventative measure ahead of Saturday's Greece-Russia.

"They were in tight knit groups, with their faces covered and wearing hoods. We found martial arts gloves on them, along with other equipment that could be used in a fight, mouth guards and disguises like fake moustaches and sideburns," Warsaw police spokesman Maciej Karczynski told AFP Monday.

Five were fined for using false identities and one will face prosecution for possession of a fake driver's license.
