‘There Are No Words:’ France, Germany Soccer Players React To Paris Attacks – Huffington Post
“I’m appalled by the shocking scenes in Paris at the moment. My thoughts are with all the victims and innocent people suffering right now,” tweeted soccer legend Thierry Henry, who played on four World Cup squads for France.
A “shocked” and “very anxious” German national team remained in Stade de France, the country’s national stadium, overnight after the attacks, German assistant coach Oliver Bierhoff told L’Equipe.
“We wanted to avoid everything and we decided to not cross Paris and to instead stay in the locker room,” Bierhoff said.
The team returned to Frankfurt early Saturday morning and several German national team players reacted to the night’s tragic events on Twitter.
