Russian ultras, you have been warned.

English football’s top boy, the Wealdstone Raider - a YouTube heavyweight whose original clip has registered well over 10 million views - is coming for you unless you stop your nonsense.

The pint-sized non-league football fan has called out the Russian thugs in a new video which you can view by scrolling down this page.

A group of Russian ultras targeted England fans in Marseille last weekend - apparently, according to intelligence services, because they want to knock their English counterparts off their perch to cement their status as the world’s most feared hooligans - leading to chaotic scenes of violence.

There was also some trouble in Lille on Tuesday night and the Wealdstone Raider - real name, Gordon Hill - has just about had enough.

Video: Wealdstone Raider warns Russia

"Russians, you've got no fans,” he says in the new video. “You want some? You've met the Welsh, you've met the English, meet the Wealdstone Raider - cause I'll give it ya."

Russia to be knocked out of Euro 2016?

Never mind the threat of disqualification from UEFA, if the Raider’s warning doesn’t stop the Russian ultras from calming themselves down for the remainder of the tournament then surely nothing will.

At this rate, though, Russia will be going home before they’re kicked out of the competition.

Leonid Slutsky’s men are currently 2-0 down to Slovakia - at the time of writing - in their second group match and have a job on their hands to salvage their Euro 2016 campaign.

England, meanwhile, will be desperate to secure maximum points against neighbours Wales on Thursday afternoon.

Roy Hodgson’s men were left disappointed in Marseille, conceding a stoppage-time equaliser. However, they will take heart from the fact they dominated large periods of the match.

While the obvious focus will be on Gareth Bale, Wayne Rooney said in England’s pre-match press conference on Wednesday: “It’s not England versus Gareth Bale. It’s England versus Wales.”

He’s not wrong.
