The FA has told England fans to be wary of wearing belts at the upcoming Italy game in Naples because they could be used as weapons.
2,500 England supporters have made the journey to Naples to cheer on their side in their Euro 2024 qualifier against Italy on Thursday.
After last week’s incident between Eintracht Frankfurt and Napoli fans, police are reported to be on high alert ahead of the fixture.

The FA have advised travelling fans not to wear their belts into the stadium because they could be used as weapons and could possibly get confiscated at the entrance.
‘Some supporters who have attended a fixture here as an away supporter have had their belts removed and not returned upon entry into the stadium,’ the FA told The Times.
‘We would advise that you do not wear a belt where possible.’
