The friendly between David Platt's side and their Dutch counterparts on Tuesday 17th February will be played in Hull. It's the second time the 25,000-seater stadium has been chosen for international football following last year's sell-out England U-21 friendly win against Serbia & Montenegro, and Platt will be hoping for a repeat of the occasion.

He said: "Last summer's friendly was a great game in a great stadium and the crowd certainly played their part.
"The atmosphere was fantastic and we knew that we would try and come back to Hull as soon as possible. The local fans showed tremendous passion and we hope they will turn out in force for the Holland game."

Adam Pearson, chairman of the Stadium Management Company, revealed he's "delighted" to see Hull host another international fixture.
