England's friendly with Holland called-off but third Test still on

England's football friendly with Holland at Wembley has been cancelled due to the escalating violence in London.

"It is with regret that tomorrow's [Wednesday 10 August] international fixture with Holland at Wembley has been called-off," the FA said in a statement released on Tuesday morning.

The escalation in violence had led to serious concerns about the Metropolitan police deploying a significant number of officers at Wembley during a time when they may be needed to keep order elsewhere. The Dutch team were due to fly out of Amsterdam at lunchtime on Tuesday.
