England will take on Euro 2016 hosts, France at Wembley Stadium this Tuesday after the French Football Association decided to not postpone the match in the wake of terrorists attacks in Paris last Friday that jolted the world.
Les Bleus were in action against World Champions Germany at Stade de France when the terrorist atrocities occured.
There was an atmosphere of uncertainty whether the game will go ahead or not but now it has been confirmed and the two European giants will clash at Wembley Stadium this Tuesday night.
Fans have been assured of taking all the necessary security measures ahead of the game and the authorities have urged the supporters to arrive as early as possible for the game to avoid long queues.
On the injury front, England have been troubled by a number of injuries with Manchester United’s Michael Carrick and Manchester City’s Fabian Delph adding to the injury list. The former was stretched off the field in the dying minutes of the game against Spain and has returned to his club for the assessment of his injury.
England boss, Roy Hodgson has called up Manchester United’s youngster, Jesse Lingard for the game against France, and the 22 years old winger can make his first appearance for the Three Lions on Tuesday. Tottenham midfielder, Ryan Mason has been called up as well, who will replace injured Fabian Delph in the squad.
FA plans to pay tribute to Paris attacks victims before the game and a minute silence will be observed in the stadium before the kick-off.
It certainly will be an emotional night as here at Squeakybumtime.com we also pay our respects to those who lost their lives last Friday.
