In a crowd of 71,223 that included British Prime Minister David Cameron and Prince William, many stood to sing 'La Marseillaise' four days on from the attacks, which left 129 people dead and over 350 injured.
England won the match 2-0 courtesy of goals from Dele Alli and captain Wayne Rooney, but the outcome of the contest was a mere anecdote on a night heavy with poignancy.
France midfielder Lassana Diarra who lost a cousin in the attacks, and team-mate Antoine Griezmann whose sister escaped the massacre at the Bataclan concert hall, both came on in the second half.

Diarra, a former player with English sides Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth was granted a warm round of applause as he came on.
There was a heavy police presence outside the ground while two armed counter-terror police officers were seen patrolling beside the pitch prior to kick-off.
The friendly between Germany and the Netherlands scheduled to take place in Hanover yesterday had earlier been canceled with German police citing a 'serious' bomb threat while
Belgium's game with Spain was also called off.
