England's friendly against the Netherlands on Wednesday is under threat after three days of rioting in the capital.

The Football Association will meet with the Metropolitan police on Tuesday to discuss on-going safety concerns, with trouble reported in Harlesden and Brent Cross, both close to the stadium.

Carling Cup matches at West Ham and Charlton were postponed on Monday night under the instructions of police. West Ham were scheduled to play Aldershot and Charlton were due to face Reading.

"Every football match is subject to some form of assessment around police resources," a Met spokesman told the Guardian. "This is no different."

Over 70,000 fans are expected at the game, with further tickets available.
