Wembley Stadium Sings French Anthem Prior to France-England Friendly (Video)

Wembley Stadium Sings French National Anthem

The French national soccer team travelled to England to take on their rivals at Wembley Stadium earlier today.  On any other occasion, France would almost certainly be met with hostility from the English fans, but not today.

With Friday’s terrorist attacks on Paris still fresh in the minds of many around the world, there has been no shortage of love and support directed towards the people of France.  That continued during today’s friendly, as French flags and many other visible signs of support were seen throughout Wembley.

And prior to the start of the match, fans and players of both England and France joined together to sing the French National Anthem, “La Marseillaise”:

Vive la France!
