Germany's international friendly against Holland was called off at late notice on Tuesday evening.

The match in Hannover was due to begin at 7.45pm GMT but a security alert saw the police step in at around 6pm to prevent it going ahead.

Dutch newspaper Telegraaf said a suspicious package was found that was later shown to be harmless.

Former Holland player Ruud Gullit wrote on Twitter: "I am now on the stadium of #hannover for the game #germany-#holland. They just suspended the game and are going to inform us why."
