England affirmed their Euro 2016 championship credentials with a 2-0 victory over hosts France at Wembley in an emotional contest on Tuesday.
Ahead of the match, thoughts were with those who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday evening, following the tragic events which unravelled during Les Bleus’ 2-0 victory over Germany at the Stade de France.
Both sets of supporters sang the French national anthem La Marseillaise, while there was a minute’s silence for the victims of the horrors of Friday.

England, heading into the match on the back of a defeat to Spain, shone in front of their open fans, with Dele Alli starring and opening the scoring with a superb effort which flew past his Tottenham Hotspur teammate Hugo Lloris after taking a deflection off Laurent Koscielny.
Wayne Rooney doubled the lead after the break with a fine volley, while the performance of Everton centre-back John Stones should cement him as England’s first-choice centre-back.
