French football fans to pay tribute to victims of UK terror attacks
Text size Aa Aa

The French football squad are warming up their limbs and their vocal chords. France are hosting England in a friendly, which is expected to be charged with emotion.

Les Bleus are inviting fans to join in the British national anthem ahead of the game, in a show of solidarity following the recent terror attacks in London and Manchester.

The Oasis classic ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ – which has been sung at a number of memorials to the victims – will also echo around the Stade de France and a minute’s silence will be held. UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who is meeting her French counterpart Emmanuel Macron tonight (June 13) is said to be attending the match.

Five of France’s expected starting line up play in England, all at either London or Manchester clubs.

The plans mirror the tributes paid at Wembley following the November 2015 Paris attacks.
