Some 30,000 supporters gathered at the foot of the Eiffel tower to see France win its first game in the Euro 2016 against Romania on Friday.

France fans brushed any security fears aside to offer feverish support to the host nation in their Euro 2016 opener at the Stade de France on Friday.

The home crowd had to wait for a superb late goal by France's man-of-the-match Dimitri Payet for a 2-1 victory over Romania before disappearing into the night with smiles on their faces.

France supporters were relieved by the end of the game.

"I believe in them, I do. Honestly, they managed to wait for the right moment, they scared me a bit but I believe in them. Payet's game was average but he was decisive, we trust in them," said Nicolas.

France next play Albania in Marseille on Wednesday June 15.
