Return of the Hooligan: Who to blame for Euro 2016 violence? (part 1)

At the European football championships in France, clashes again broke out in Lille after Russia-Slovakia and ahead of Wales-England. Here we are in 2016 still asking how effective alcohol bans, arrests and deportations have been, especially in the wake of last week's rioting in Marseille before, during, and after England-Russia. How did a determined group of some 150 Russian hooligans manage to catch the cops off guard? How does it bode for the next World Cup to be hosted in Russia in 2018?
