Amsterdam police arrest 90 England fans

Amsterdam police arrest 90 England fans

Dozens of England supporters have been arrested in Amsterdam after violent altercations with police ahead of the Three Lions' global friendly with the Netherlands on Friday.

An initial statement, which was quickly updated to reflect the growing number, said the Amsterdam police had arrested 70 fans before it was then raised to 90.

However, Southgate's words appear to have been ignored and the news will further tarnish the reputation of England supporters who have a long history of hooliganism.

"As ever, the FA will work in partnership with the UK Football Policing Unit to help identify those involved and we will sanction any England Supporters Travel Club member found to be responsible for disorder".

England's Football Supporters' Federation chief executive Kevin Miles said there was no defence for the "atrocious anti-social behaviour by a minority of English fans".

There was no sign of trouble at the Amsterdam Arena on the southern edge of the Dutch capital where the two teams were playing Friday night. England won the match 1-0 thanks to a second-half strike from Jesse Lingard.




The Dutch national anthem was also booed by a minority of England fans, an act described as "unacceptable" by England manager Gareth Southgate.

"Some were arrested because they were throwing beer bottles in the direction of officers", a statement read.

A total of 27 members were suspended for their behaviour in Dortmund. As was reiterated ahead of the fixture, we always urge supporters to respect our hosts and behave in a responsible manner.

"They are representing our country in the same way we are".

Josh Mahoney, 23, is in Amsterdam with family for his first England game and told the Press Association the police were "very heavy handed".
