In Brussels, the capital of Belgium, the fans watching the match returned to the street immediately after the final whistle and started shooting fireworks at the police forces on the spot.

Another video shows how the fans shout at a man who lives in a nearby building for the simple reason that the French flag hangs on his balcony.

A few seconds later the man removed the flag and returned to his house.


The riots also reached the victorious country of France, with videos from the city of Montpellier showing fans of the Moroccan national team taking over a central square in the city and shooting off fireworks.
