Wayne Rooney happy with England – France friendly
Despite the terrorist attacks in Paris, including one outside the Stade de France when France played Germany, the England – France friendly will hold as scheduled.
The refusal to cancel the match is a good thing according to England’s Wayne Rooney, who believes it shows ISIS just how united the world is against them.
“It was shocking, sickening, hard to watch,” said the Manchester United striker. “We knew, watching it all unfold, that there would be a chance the game might not be on. We were happy to do whatever was decided, either way, but I’m pleased the game’s on.”
“Playing it shows France is demonstrating to the terrorists that they’re standing strong against them, and we have to support that. Sometimes, when bad things happen, football is the place where you feel most comfortable. Their players might be taking that into consideration. This will be a great night of togetherness for everyone to see. It will show the terrorists that the world will go on and stand against them.”
