Next up for the England football team is a trip to Belarus on Wednesday in another crucial World Cup qualifier.

Italian football federation president Giancarlo Abete has confirmed that Italy fans will be barred from buying tickets to away matches until further notice.

Three Italy fans were arrested on Saturday for burning a Bulgarian flag during a World Cup qualifier in Sofia, which ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Italian hooligans, who delivered fascist salutes during the game, also provoked fights outside the ground before the match kicked off.

“From today we will stop asking for tickets for our supporters for away matches as long as we don’t have any guarantees or ways of verifying (who buys the tickets),” Abete said on Rai Radio.

“We’ll stop asking for tickets but we must remain vigilant because for the match in Cyprus (in Septmeber) we didn’t ask for any tickets and yet some supporters still found a way (to get them).”

Italy next play away in Montenegro in March.
