All 23 France players will travel to London to face England in their friendly at Wembley on Tuesday after turning down the option to withdraw following the Paris attacks.

Midfielder Lassana Diarra’s cousin was one of at least 129 people killed on Friday, while Antoine Griezmann’s sister escaped from the Bataclan theatre where 89 of those people died.

Both players were involved at the time in France’s friendly against Germany at the Stade de France, which was also targeted during the attack.

France is in three days of mourning.

Les Bleus coach Didier Deschamps offered his players the chance to pull out of the squad, but the French Football Federation confirmed that “all the players are coming”.

England manager Roy Hodgson welcomed the decision to play the match stating the “football world is united against these atrocities”.

France will hold a news conference at Wembley on Monday before taking part in a training session at the stadium.
