Named only as Mahmoud A, the suspect is thought to have been affiliated with terrorist death cult ISIS since 2016.

It comes after Thomas Haldenwang, head of Germany’s intelligence agency, warned there was a “high chance” of a terror attack at the tournament.

Mahmoud, from Iraq, arrived in Germany in October 2022.

Cops pounced on him in Esslingen, a town on the outskirts of Stuttgart where Euros matches are set to kick off in the city’s stadium.

Germany itself played Hungary there on Wednesday, just hours after the suspected terrorist was arrested.

Intelligence boss Haldenwang said this week that the principle threats to the 2024 games could come from Islamic extremists.

He pinpointed ISIS splinter cell ISIS-K as the main “focus of attention” for any potential concerns.
