Riot in Brussels after Morocco's 2-0 shock victory over Belgium at FIFA World Cup  in Qatar

Police had to use water cannon and teargas after getting attacked by football supporters who brought havoc to the centre of Brussels on Sunday following Morocco's shock 2-0 World Cup win over Belgium in Qatar.

Hundreds of fans crashed shop windows, threw fireworks and smashed cars.

Even before the end of the match, "dozens of people, including some wearing hoodies, sought confrontation with the police, which compromised public safety," Brussels police said in a statement.

Fans were armed with sticks and a journalist "was injured in the face by fireworks".

Residents were warned to avoid certain areas of the city centre. Metro stations were closed and streets blocked to limit the spread of the violence.
