The France squad were not consulted over whether their friendly match against England at Wembley would go ahead in the wake of Friday's (13 November) terror attacks in Paris.

129 people were killed in a series of attacks on the French capital where the Stade de France was also targeted by suicide bombers while the national team took on Germany inside the venue.

Friday's atrocities raised doubts whether England's friendly against Les Blues at Wembley on Tuesday 17 November could go ahead but after meetings with the government, Metropolitan police and French officials it was decided the match would take place as planned.

However, according to The Times, some members of the travelling French squad are unhappy with the decision taken by the president of the French Football Federation Noël Le Graët.

The FFF chief announced on Sunday 15 November he alone had taken the decision, only informing national team manager Didier Deschamps after approval had been given.

"The players had nothing to do with the fact that this game will take place," Le Graet said. "It is me alone who made the call. Then I informed Deschamps around midday."

Following Friday's attacks it later emerged that France midfielder Lassana Diarra, who played in the 2-0 win over Germany, lost a cousin. Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann also confirmed via social media his sister had escaped the attack on the Bataclan Theatre which was stormed by gunmen.

England will pay their respects to those who lost their lives in the French capital in Tuesday's friendly and will encourage supporters to show solidarity by singing along to the French national anthem, 'La Marseillaise'. The lyrics will be displayed on Wembley's big screens whilst the Wembley arch is also to be lit up in the French tricolore.
