  • Footage of England fans belting out

Twenty-five England supporters have been detained by Dutch police after they were caught hurling beer bottles at officers in Amsterdam.

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

Riot cops then swooped in Amsterdam's famous Red Light District and made 60 arrests after they "imprisoned" fans on a canal bridge.

Police chiefs have spoken out against the behaviour of a section of England fans after more than 100 of them were arrested in Amsterdam this week, per BBC Sport.

Sky Sports reported that nearly 30 fans had been held behind bars overnight for drunken behavior in the Netherlands' capital as the Three Lions prepare to take on Ronald Koeman's Oranje side at 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.

It's been reported that at least 25 England fans have been detained as a direct result of the incident.

"The rest, that's the first I've heard just outside before", said Southgate.


"Anything else that takes away from that performance for them would be a great shame".

If the FA find that any of their 5,234 official England Supporters Club ticket-holders were arrested, they face being thrown out.

'When we arrested that group it became quiet in the red light district.

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

There were 27 members suspended in total for their behaviour in Dortmund, with a further six given written warnings while there remains one case pending.

"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". "We had been in there several hours with no trouble at all".
