FFF confirm France’s friendly with England next week WILL go ahead

The French Football Federation have confirmed that Tuesday’s friendly with England at Wembley Stadium will go ahead, according to their official website.

The match was thrown into doubt following Friday night’s shocking terrorist attacks across Paris, which included the Stade de France being targeted during France’s meeting with Germany.

At least four fans have been confirmed dead due to a suicide bomber outside the gates of the stadium, with television cameras picking up the noise of explosions in the first half of the match.

France went on to win the game 2-0, but the result paled into significance with what was going on outside the stadium.

The players weren’t told about the unfolding events until after the final whistle, for fear of causing more panic.

England gave France the option of postponing the game, but it now appears as though they will travel to London to take part in a show of defiance.
