Kick-off 8pm at Stade de France

Henry Winter has stated that God Save The Queen will be on screens for fans to sing along to (like Marsellaise lyrics was on at Wembley after attacks in France).

Tom Heaton to play first half in goal. Jack Butland to play second half. 

Kane to be captain again.

Thank fuck for no Joe Hart.

No reason why we can't beat France but we all said that about Scotland.

plenty of reasons why we can't. One of them being that they have a much better squad than us and far more talent across the pitch individually.

France are going through a bit of a dodgy moment and this is a friendly at the end of the day which makes the whole thing rather meaningless and not a true reflection of where both sides stand at this moment.

On our day we can match them at least, they have a good squad but have had a few poor results recently.

Waste of time. First teamers will have their eyes on the full time whistle so I would play an entire B team.

The French are going to sing God Save the Queen because of the terrorist attacks (after England fans and for some bizarre reason Premier League clubs sang the French national anthem last year)

xD

It's not the Queen that needs saving it's the public

Kante, France's best performing midfielder at club level by far. Atrocious mistake to put him next to an over rated midfielder in Pogba; they need a more defensive dynamic midfielder like Bakayoko.

I get the reason why Don't Look Back in Anger is being sung in this scenario but it sounds absolutely horrendous xD

i agree mate. can't wait for 'Sergio B' to make his French debut. Surprised he's not got a call-up already.

Kane. 1-0.

Great play by Sterling and a good cross from Bertrand to set Kane up.

if Kante had a better midfielder next to him, that goal would not have happened.

It's become the soundtrack of the Manchester attacks. I thought that it was a great gesture from the French considering we're historically rivals and shows to the rest of Europe that good people will always come together.

Kante's FA cup final performance: got outperformed by the worst arsenal midfield in recent years.

Pogba vs ajax, a far better team than Arsenal: best player offensively and defensively

what? I know why it was sung ('I get the reason why...')

but just stating that it sounded terrible until the fans got involved.

Different cultures I guess, I don't think the French are known for their Oasis-sounding music. They did what they thought was best and that's good enough for me.

again, I don't question the sentiment of it all and agree about the gesture of solidarity shown between the 2 countries since the attacks in each country.

equaliser. Kante takes the free-kick. Kante heads the ball which is saved by Heaton. Kante gets the rebound. 

Kante 1-1 England.
