Some quotes from the link you posted :P

"I must emphasise that this is not a football-related incident," he said, adding that a man was in custody following the stabbing and no further details could be given.

"This is a tragic incident in which a young man who was fulfilling his dream of travelling the world has died," he said.

A Foreign Office spokesman earlier said it had been "completely peaceful" overnight and there were no reported arrests of any England fans.

BBC correspondent James Coomarasamy, in Lisbon, said Portuguese police believed the fan had been stabbed during an attempted robbery or pick-pocketing.

There was no evidence the death had followed any altercation between rival groups of fans in the city, our correspondent said.

He said the mood in Lisbon had seemed peaceful following the match.
