The National Stadium of Andorra suffers a fire before the Andorra-England

The National Stadium of Andorra, which on Saturday hosts the qualifying match for the Qatar-2022 World Cup, between the principality and England, suffered a fire that has already been extinguished by firefighters.

“The small fire generated in the National Stadium on the afternoon of this Friday has been put out,” said the Andorran government in a message on its official twitter account, without, apparently, there having been any injuries.

Shortly before, British television SkySports had published photos on its website showing flames and thick black smoke.
