The local police force posted a statement on their official Twitter account announcing the number taken into custody on Friday has risen to 90, bringing the total of England supporters arrested over the past two days to over 100.

And being in Amsterdam is a pretty cool away day for supporters given how exciting the Dutch capital is.

Footage emerged of riot police dispersing fans in the city's red light district and one Englishman was injured in clashes and taken to hospital.

At least 25 England fans were arrested last night for drunken behaviour.

The Netherlands hosted Gareth Southgate's Three Lions in an global friendly on Friday night.

The Dutch lost 0-1 to England, with Manchester United's Jesse Lingard scoring the decisive goal.

Jesse Lingard's first worldwide goal secured the Three Lions a fully-deserved 1-0 win in Friday's World Cup warm-up friendly, but on-field success came with the cloud of off-field issues in Amsterdam.

"Without knowing the details. obviously it's not something I want to hear because most of all for us, I think our players have represented their country really well tonight with pride and some style. The last 8 are still being questioned, mainly for violence against police officers", the Amsterdam police said in a tweet.

Police chiefs have condemned the "appalling" behaviour of a "large number" of England football fans after dozens were arrested in Amsterdam.

As relations between the two countries break down over the attempted murder of former Soviet-turned-British spy Sergei Skripal, the United Kingdom government has urged England supporters to think twice about heading to Russia for fear of Russian ultras violently attacking them.

Glass can be heard smashed as the friendly fixture continues to be marred by videos emerging of trouble in Amsterdam.

The FA said any of its members identified as causing trouble would be banned from the organisation.
