French fans paid tribute to the victims of Manchester and London during the International friendly match between France and England on Tuesday.

The song by famous English band Oasis “Don’t Look Back in Anger” echoed in the Stade de France stadium, which was in the colours of red and white, when both the European teams walked out to play.

Fans held placards to form a giant England flag to show solidarity after the attacks in England left multiple dead two weeks back.

While footballers and clubs expressed their condolences to the victims after the attack, English and French fans came together during the friendly to pay tribute on Wednesday.

A minute’s silence was observed after the team players formed a circle at the centre of the pitch at the start of the game.
