Speaking to Swiss publication BLICK, Burki has revealed what happened on the coach after the blast.

“The bus turned on the main road when there was suddenly a huge bang, a proper explosion," he said.

"The police were quickly on the spot and handled the situation. We were all in shock. After the bang we all ducked and those who could lie on the floor did so. We didn’t know what was going to happen next.”

The game has been rescheduled for tomorrow at 5.45pm Irish time.
