Dozens of England supporters have been arrested in Amsterdam after violent altercations with police ahead of the Three Lions' worldwide friendly with the Netherlands on Friday.
A legion of England fans were arrested after a video has surfaced of at least 25 of them launching booze and plastic cups at a group of women in a boat, following by one of them diving into the Amsterdam canal.
England manager Gareth Southgate had urged supporters to behave on the eve of Friday's friendly, where his side were due to be backed by 5,253 fans in the away section.
The irony in all of this is that England fans have been warned about heading out east to follow their national side at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation later this year.
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.
England are playing the Netherlands tonight in a friendly in the Dutch capital.

Jesse Lingard's first global 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.
"I heard some of the booing of the anthem which obviously isn't acceptable", Southgate told a post-match press conference later.
In a statement, police said: 'Some were arrested because they were throwing beer bottles in the direction of officers.
"We arrested 90 English people, mainly because they were disturbing the peace", an Amsterdam police spokesman is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying.
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. As was reiterated ahead of the fixture, we always urge supporters to respect our hosts and behave in a responsible manner.
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. "We had been in there several hours with no trouble at all".
