During the warm-up before the game, PSG star Kylian Mbappe greeted the Paris firefighters and their children on the field.
Four hundred firefighters were deployed last Monday to tackle the fire and fight to prevent it from causing the complete destruction of the 850-year-old Gothic building after the flames flattened the roof, causing the spire to fall to the ground.
Prior to the kick-off in the Ligue 1 game against Monaco on Sunday, large screens at the Parc des Princes urged fans to make a donation to help rebuild Notre Dame.
Nathalie Boy De La Tour, the president of the professional football association of France, had already promised financial support for the restoration project.
& # 39; The world of (French) football will mobilize to financially rebuild this cathedral, which is part of our heritage, & # 39 ;, said Boy De La Tour, as reported by L&E Equipe.
& # 39; This is a help that we will coordinate with all players in football. We will show solidarity with this drama that concerns us all. It has touched us a lot. & # 39;
