After the surprising victory of the Moroccan national team in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Qatar, hundreds of fans celebrated in Berlin on Saturday.

Shortly after the 1-0 win over Portugal, according to the police, a party was held by Moroccan fans with about 300 to 500 people in the Neukölln district of Berlin. A spokesman for the police parking service said the celebration at Sonnenallee did not go as the police had imagined. Bangalores and firecrackers were lit. Several officers were on duty. “After the deployment of strong forces, calm has returned,” the Mawqif Service said.

There were also arrests, but the exact number was not known at first. According to the police, things calmed down after the England/France quarter-final kicked off at 8pm.

A party was also held on Alexanderplatz. According to the police, from 80 to 100 people gathered there. There was another celebration shortly afterwards in City West. According to the police, about 300 fans celebrated at Hardenberg-Platz.
