Thousands of soccer fans聽at England’s Wembley Stadium showed聽solidarity with France Tuesday, joining in singing of聽‘La Marseillaise’, the French national anthem.
More than 70,000 people聽were in attendance at the famed sports venue for an England versus聽France soccer match just days after the tragic Paris attacks left at least 129 people dead.
A flag reading “Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite” led the players聽onto the field, where members of聽both teams stood shoulder-to-shoulder for a photograph. Both country’s anthems were then played, first of England then France.
