The England NT friendly vs. Holland that was scheduled to take place at Wembley Stadium tomorrow has been postponed due to the sporadic rioting that has paralysed England’s capital over the last couple of days.
This might be disappointing, but like many people, we are devastated to see our beloved London burning and would support any action that will free up policing to bring the situation under control. Rio Ferdinand, who was born and brought up in Peckham (one of the areas affected by the unrest), has tweeted his support for the postponement and also his distress at the scenes being played out on UK media outlets. His Manchester United team mate Wayne Rooney also expressed bewilderment and pleaded for calm.
Normal service will be resumed shortly. In the meantime, why not tell us what you think?
