Nearly 100 English fans have been arrested in Amsterdam

Nearly 100 English fans have been arrested in Amsterdam

Six England fans remained behind bars Saturday along with two Dutch supporters after over 100 people were arrested in ugly clashes before a friendly worldwide match in Amsterdam.

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

But his words were ignored by some of the more than 5,000 away supporters inside the ground, who jeered the Dutch national anthem before kick-off instead.

Authorities have confirmed that nearly one hundred fans were arrested and held overnight for offences including public disorder.

The Football Association also handed out liftetime bans to supporters in June 2017 after England's 1-0 defeat to Germany was marred by fans making Nazi-related gestures, per Miguel Delaney at The Independent.

One video showed a fan stripping down and launching himself into the canal as Three Lions supporters wreak havoc in the Dutch capital.

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard scored England's goal.

An Amsterdam police spokesman had told Press Association Sport: "We arrested 90 English people, mainly because they were disturbing the peace".

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

England fans are preparing to travel to Russian Federation for the World Cup this summer after violent clashes between the two countries' supporters at Euro 2016 in France. As we reiterated ahead of the fixture, we always urge supporters to respect our hosts and behave in a responsible manner. "They will be the mirror of our country that people in Holland look at".

The FA will review those caught up in trouble in Amsterdam to see if ESTC members were involved and punish them accordingly.
