Prime Minister Theresa May to attend France vs England after political talks

Date Posted,June 11, 2017

Prime Minister Theresa May is set to attend England’s friendly with France.

The two sides meet at the Stade de France on Tuesday night with Mrs May set to be in attendance with President Macron after talks in Paris.

A number of tributes are planned for the encounter following the attacks in Manchester and London.

A minute’s silence will be held ahead of kick-off, as it was before Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Scotland.

Oasis’ Don’t Look Back in Anger is also expected to be played before the players emerge from the tunnel before the match.

The scenes will be reminiscent of those at Wembley following the Paris attacks in November 2015.

On that occasion, both sets of fans united to sing the French anthem Le Marseillaise, while supporters are set to hold red and white placards to form the England flag.

England boss Gareth Southgate has confirmed Tom Heaton will start in goal against France, with Jack Butland playing the second-half.

France are also expected to make changes with Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe tipped to start.
