England’s international football friendly with France at Wembley will go ahead as planned on Tuesday, the French Football Federation has announced.

The match had been in question following the Paris terror attacks on Friday night which left at least 128 people dead. One of the attacks took place near the Stade de France, where Les Bleus were playing Germany in a friendly.

However, the FFF announced in a statement on Saturday: “President Noel Le Graet confirmed on Saturday that the match between England and France scheduled for Tuesday November 17 (8pm local time) at Wembley will still take place.”

UEFA issued a brief statement on Saturday morning regarding the attacks.

It read: “UEFA is deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic events which occurred in Paris last night and wishes to express its support and solidarity to France and to those affected by these horrible acts.”
