“They were taken to a police station. Some of them were kept in custody. Interrogations are taking place in order to clarify the matter,” Peczar said on Saturday, adding that the police have begun a criminal investigation into alleged rowdiness and destruction of property. Peczar announced that the police will release further information on the case later.

Peczár also said that around 320-350 police officers were deployed in Bratislava for the match itself which was viewed by the police as involving some risks.
