  • Watch England fan dives head first into Amsterdam canal ahead of Three Lions friendly with the Netherlands

Six England fans remained behind bars Saturday along with two Dutch supporters after over 100 people were arrested in ugly clashes before a friendly global match in Amsterdam.

Dutch police said they had arrested 25 supporters who were drunk and had thrown beer bottles at officers, per BBC Sport.

Amsterdam police have suspended the ban on public drinking in the city's red light district because so many drunken English football fans are in the area that the ban can no longer be enforced, local broadcaster AT5 said on Friday.

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.

England manager Gareth Southgate said he was disappointed to hear about fan trouble after his players won with "pride and some style" in the World Cup warm-up friendly. England won the match 1-0 thanks to a second-half strike from Jesse Lingard.

Josh Mahoney, 23, was in Amsterdam with family for his first England game and told the Press Association following the news of Thursday's arrests that the police were "very heavy-handed".

"So, anything else that takes away from that performance for them would be a great shame".

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

Riot police were set to remain in Amsterdam to ensure there was no trouble following the match.

And they have been in good voice as per, with Englishmen up and down the country gathering along the historic canals that wind their way through the city.

England fans are under more focus ahead of their trip to Russian Federation for the World Cup in the summer and this example does nothing for their reputation. There was a riot van at the door pulling fans out of the pub.
