England’s friendly against France has “massive global significance” and is a chance to show “terrorism can’t win” following Friday’s attacks in Paris, Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn has said.

Roy Hodgson’s England host Les Bleus on Tuesday four days after 129 people were killed and hundreds more injured in a series of attacks in the French capital.

Various tributes are planned for the match in memory of the victims of the attack, including the singing of French national anthem La Marseillaise, and Glenn says the eyes of the world will be on Wembley.

He told a press conference: “This is going to have massive global significance – the first major event since Friday. It is a chance to demonstrate terrorism can’t win.

” We can’t afford to let this act of terror cow us.”
