These shocking pictures reveal the carnage on the streets of Amsterdam after 100 England football fans were arrested in Holland ahead of the Three Lions' 1-0 win over the Netherlands.

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

Yesterday, 25 England fans were arrested after riot police were brought in to break up the mass of people.

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.

Jesse Lingard's maiden global goal secured victory for England, who are next in action against Italy on Wednesday (AEDT).

Officers declared that Riot police have arrested 60 people in the red light region.

The military offered condolences to the families of the martyred soldiers and wished injured soldiers a speedy recovery. The US State Department also expressed concern over the humanitarian ramifications of the Turkish operation in Afrin.

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

A number of England fans are expected to have bought tickets in the home end for Friday's friendly as well as the strong travelling contingent for the last away game before the World Cup.

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

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.

In a statement released on Twitter, the FA confirmed they will work alongside the UK Football Policing Unit in an attempt to identify those involved.
