England and France pay emotional tribute to terror attack victims with Oasis classic ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’

England and France paid tribute to the Manchester and London terror attack victims ahead of their friendly on Tuesday.

Both countries have been subject to atrocities over the last few years, with similar marks of respect taking place when the two sides last met in November 2015 – a couple of days after the Paris terror attacks.

At the Stade de France, a member of the invited brass band played ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ by Oasis which has become the unofficial theme of hope since the UK events.

As fans around the ground sang out the classic song from the Manchester band, the two teams emerged onto the pitch and lined up ahead of the national anthems.

France sang first before the lyrics to ‘God Save The Queen’ were displayed on the stadium screens for the crowd to sing along to, as the FA implemented with ‘La Marseillaise’ at Wembley in 2015.
