Following the shocking events in Paris on Friday, it initially appeared that France’s game with England on Tuesday would be postponed.

Since then, it has been announced that the Wembley fixture will go ahead with the England supporters being encouraged to join in with the French national anthem.

The words to La Marseillaise will be visible on Wembley’s screens allowing home fans to sing along in a show of unity following the terror attacks which have left 129 people dead and hundreds more injured.

Explosions were heard outside the Stade de France during the friendly match with Germany on Friday night, with reports suggesting a suicide bomber was prevented from entering the stadium.
