Twitter Praises Lassana Diarra as Frenchman Plays 4 Days After His Cousin Was Killed

Twitter Praises Lassana Diarra as Frenchman Plays 4 Days After His Cousin Was Killed

Tonight, as the French national team prepared to get back to business on the park following the traumatising events which took place only a stone throw away from the Stade de France where they entertained Germany, they were joined in solidarity from their English opponents as fans posed for pre-match pictures while the entire Wembley stadium joined in for a rendition of La Marseillaise – the French national anthem.

It was a fantastic gesture from the home side as the Wembley arch, lit in the red, white and blue colours of the French flag, shadowed over the crowd who unveiled their Tricolour tifo.

In a match which is normally described as a rivalry, fans set aside their difference to join as one as England went on to a 2-0 victory courtesy of goals from Delle Ali and Wayne Rooney.

However, Twitter users took to the social media site to praise former Portsmouth, Arsenal and Chelsea star Lassana Diara who lost his cousin in the terror attack desribed as the worst in over a decade.

Lass posted a statement to his Twitter account on Saturday sharing his thoughts and feelings at the death of his cousin who he described as a big sister and tonight he showed his bravado taking to the field.
