English manager Roy Hodgson and captain Wayne Rooney asked England fans to behave themselves in a video released Monday following outbreaks of violence at Euro 2016.

The video comes in the wake of the UEFA Executive Committee’s threat to disqualify England from Euro 2016 due to its and Russia’s fans clashing before and after a match in Marseille. Fans of both teams rioted in the streets leading up to the match, which ended in a 1–1 tie. English fans then fled the stadium post-game after being charged by a large group of Russian fans.

Russia was subsequently charged with crowd disturbances, racist behavior and setting off fireworks.
