English FA condemns fans behaviour following Amsterdam arrests

The FA has condemned the unacceptable behaviour of England supporters in Amsterdam after 90 were arrested before and after the friendly international against the Netherlands on Friday. Video footage on social media showed some fans throwing bottles at police and others throwing bicycles into Amsterdam's historic canals before the match in the Amsterdam Arena.
The Dutch national anthem was also booed by a minority of England fans, an act described as unacceptable by England manager Gareth Southgate.

An FA spokesperson said: “We condemn the unacceptable scenes in Amsterdam. As was reiterated ahead of the fixture, we always urge supporters to respect our hosts and behave in a responsible manner. 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.”
