Saint-Etienne fireworks display in PSG clash injures stewards

The flashy display backfired with three stadium workers suffering the consequences

A Ligue 1 match between Saint-Etienne and Paris Saint-Germain was interrupted late on by an explosive fireworks display that left three stewards with minor injuries.

In the 89th minute at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, just as Kylian Mbappe put the Parisians 4-0 up, Saint-Etienne's active supporters known as the 'Kop Nord' literally ignited as they let off a series of pyrotechnics.

While visually stunning, the display could result in fines for the club with coach Claude Puel stressing they weren't necessary.
