As London struggled to contain the riots that have swept through the capital the Football Association have cancelled England’s friendly against Holland on Wednesday.

With the capital’s police forces stretched due to the increasing number of hot-spots of fighting it was decided that in the interest of public safety the match will not go ahead.

Other games to be called off due to the rioting are:

Tuesday: Charlton v Reading (Carling Cup)
Tuesday: West Ham v Aldershot (Carling Cup)
Tuesday: Crystal Palace v Crawley Town (Carling Cup)
Tuesday: Bristol City v Swindon (Carling Cup)
