Germany were ‘scared’ ahead of France game following Friday morning bomb threat

Germany coach Joachim Low has revealed that his players were already scared ahead of kick off with France on Friday night thanks to a bomb threat at their hotel earlier in the day, the Daily Mail reports.

France won 2-0 on the evening, but the game was overshadowed by the events that unfolded outside the stadium that left dozens of people dead.

Police helicopters hovered above the stadium at the final whistle, while French President Francois Hollande swiftly left for the interior ministry.

“We are all in shock,” said Germany coach Low post-match. “The game and the goals move into the background on a day like this.

“We were told in the changing rooms what had happened. All of us on the bench were a bit scared because of a bomb threat earlier today when we spent three hours outside (our hotel).”

The German national football team had been evacuated from their hotel in Paris due to a bomb threat as an anonymous caller phoned in the threat at 9:50 am on Friday morning.
