London: England striker Wayne Rooney has appealed for an end to the violence and looting in London that led to the cancellation of Wednesday's friendly against the Netherlands.
After a third night of unrest in London, talks will be held on Tuesday to see whether Scotland Yard can cope with policing the Wembley Stadium match while trying to maintain order elsewhere.
"These riots are nuts why would people do this to there (sic) own country. Own city," Rooney wrote on Twitter. "This is embarrassing for our country. Stop please."
