Players suffered cuts from the glass from broken windows and were also affected after police fired tear gas to disperse the crowds.

The re-arranged game will now take place on December, 9 at 7.30pm.

SunSport reported last night how Qatar were leading the race to stage the game after offering CONMEBOL, South American football’s governing body, £10m to host it.

The 40,000-capacity Khalifa International Stadium was due to be confirmed as the ground for December 8 but a fierce backlash has led to the home of the Galacticos being used instead.
