Matters on the pitch were quickly overshadowed as least 60 people were killed in two suicide attacks and one bombing near the stadium on the outskirts of Paris.

One of the explosions was clearly audible during the contest. Three people were confirmed dead after a grenade exploded at the stadium.

Players from both sides looked stunned at both half-time and after the full time whistle as France was plunged into a state of emergency.

Both teams were kept within the stadium long after the final whistle.
