The terrorist attacks in Paris yesterday happened during the France vs. Germany friendly at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis near Paris. Players on the field and the spectators at the stadium heard the explosions, and according to German TV reporters, the ground at the stadium was shaking. The TV reporters from the live match on German public TV were scared themselves and former FC Bayern Munich player, and now commentator for German public TV, Mehmet Scholl, paused to call home.
