Buenos Aires - Paris Saint-Germain star Angel Di Maria expressed his shock on Friday at the bloody attacks in the French capital after Argentina's Soccer World Cup clash with Brazil.

Di Maria's PSG team-mates Ezequiel Lavezzi and David Luiz were also playing in Friday's 1-1 at the Monumental Stadium in Buenos Aires, where a minute's silence was held before kick-off to honor victims of the violence.

"I'd only just heard about what happened," Di Maria said. "It's incredible. These things have to stop," the midfielder added.

Lavezzi, who scored Argentina's goal in the draw, meanwhile took to Twitter to express his sorrow at the attacks.

"Pray for Paris," the forward wrote above a viral image of an eye tinted by the colors of the French tricolore.
