A video circulating on Twitter shows fans bouncing up and down after Vitesse beat NEC 1-0, before the stand worryingly gives way.

The players immediately appeared shocked, with some putting their hands across their mouths and on their heads.

However, they continued their celebrations seconds later after it appeared that nobody was injured.

The Major of Nijmegen, Hubert Bruls confirmed afterwards supporters suffered a lucky escape.

Bruls also called for a thorough investigation of the incident.

He told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: “I am very shocked by what happened. Fortunately, as far as [we know], no one was injured.
