France star asks their fans to sing God Save The Queen on Tuesday to show solidarity after England’s terror attacks

Date Posted,June 10, 2017

Blaise Matuidi has called for France fans to sing God Save The Queen before the friendly against England in Paris on Tuesday night to show solidarity after recent terrorist attacks in the UK.

Supporters at Wembley sang La Marseillaise, the French anthem, before the sides’ last meeting in November 2015 — four days after the Paris atrocities.

Now England has seen bloodshed in Manchester and London – and three French citizens were among those killed in the capital.

Paris Saint-Germain and France midfielder Matuidi said: “Of course I would like our fans to sing their anthem.

“The country deserves it — especially with what has happened recently.

“It would be a great pleasure to support this country. Yes, I would encourage people who are in the stadium to accompany the Englisn anthem if it is sung.”
