Hun­dreds of English foot­ball fans were ar­rested in Rot­ter­dam in the run-up to last night’s World Cup match with Hol­land. Although the game, which Eng­land lost 2-0, ap­peared to pass off peace­fully, the match was marred by days of street vi­o­lence. Scot­land, too, tasted de­feat by los­ing 3-1 to Italy in Rome, but no trou­ble was re­ported. The scale of the trou­ble in Hol­land was em­pha­sised when 20 fans es­caped from an army bar­racks where they were be­ing held be­fore be­ing de­ported.
