Riot Police Called to Paris Nike Store as Fans Fight Over France Jerseys with Two Stars

Riot Police Called to Paris Nike Store as Fans Fight Over France Jerseys with Two Stars

France added a second star to their iconic blue jersey yesterday – and some of their supporters have been so desperate to get a hold of an updated shirt that riot police had to be called to the Paris Nike store earlier today.

As football fans will be all too aware, any international side that wins the World Cup is traditionally awarded a star above the crest on their jersey to mark the achievement, and yesterday’s triumph for Didier Deschamps’ men in Moscow meant the unmistakable Gallic rooster was due another star above its head.

Confident of victory over yesterday’s opponents Croatia, the American manufacturers Nike had their two-starred uniforms all ready to go on sale on Monday morning, but it seems demand on their Champs-Élysées store got a bit out of hand.

According to the Mirror, scuffles broke out this morning amongst queuing supporters, promoting the store to be closed and riot police to be called.

The 4-2 victory for France in Sunday’s World Cup Final prompted mass celebrations all over the country, but also led to serious trouble and some nasty scenes. 

It appears supporters will need to wait until Tuesday to purchase the updated France shirt – but would you buy it?
