2 min read

The French and English football players paid their tribute to the 129 people who died during the Paris attacks ahead of their friendly game at the Wembley stadium in London on Tuesday.

It was not only the players but the fans too. There were 70,000 people in the stands who sang the French national anthem - La Marseillaise along with the players.

The game between France and Germany was targeted during the attacks, but still the French team decided to play a game at Wembley.

Although England won 2-0 with Dele Alli and Wayne Rooney finding the back of the net, the result was far away from the minds of everyone present at the stadium.
