Any manager concerns over potential injury to their England players this week are now alleviated with the understandable postponement of England versus Holland…
The unprecedented decision to call off a pre Euro 2012 qualifiers preparation friendly was inevitable with London’s policing so stretched amid shocking rioting.
The Holland squad have remained in Amsterdam and after a training day, the likes of Jimmy Milner, Joe Hart, AJ, Gareth Barry, Joleon Lescott and Micah will return to their clubs. Nigel De Jong will also be back with The Blues earlier than expected.
There weren’t many people in favour of an England international friendly so close to the start of the Premier League season, but nobody would have wished for a postponement as a result of such terrible events as those unfolding in London this week.
