England Fans Will Be Asked to Sing French National Anthem at Wembley on Tuesday

England Fans Will Be Asked to Sing French National Anthem at Wembley on Tuesday

Following the shocking and horrific events of Friday night in Paris, it was initially suggested that England’s friendly against France at Wembley on Tuesday be called-off and postponed until a later date.

But the FAs of both countries agreed that the Euro 2016 warm-up match should go ahead, with both sets of fans eager to pay their respects to the 129 victims of the terrorist attack.

And now it looks like England supporters will have the perfect opportunity, with people attending the match being encouraged to join in with signing the French national anthem as players line-up before kick-off.

The words to La Marseillaise will be visible on Wembley’s screens allowing the expectant home crowd of 80,000+ to sing along in a show of unity and solidarity.

England’s national stadium has already been used to pay tribute to victims of the attack by lighting up in the colours of red, white and blue on Saturday.

Security for the match has already been heightened after three people were killed by a suicide bomb during France’s friendly with Germany on Friday night at Stade de France.
