A calm atmosphere surrounded the Stade de France Tuesday evening as France's soccer team returned to its national stadium for the first time since last November's attacks in Paris.Suicide bombers blew themselves up outside the stadium during France's friendly against Germany, killing one bystander.Though Tuesday's game at the stadium where France won the 1998 World Cup is the first for the soccer team since those attacks, France has played three Six Nations rugby matches there without incident.About 2.5 million fans are set to attend matches in the 10 host cities being used for the soccer tournament.
