England’s friendly against France at Wembley on Tuesday will go ahead as planned, according to the French Football Federation (FFF).

There were doubts as to whether the game would take place after a series of attacks in Paris that have killed at least 128 people.

Three suicide bombers died in blasts outside the Stade de France while France played Germany on Friday.

But FFF president Noel le Graet said Les Bleus would travel to London.

The Football Association is yet to comment on the fixture.

French President Francois Hollande has declared three days of national mourning as the capital recovers from the worst atrocity in Europe since the 2004 Madrid bombings.

Hollande has raised the security threat level to its highest point and imposed a nationwide state of emergency.

Earlier, Le Graet said in a statement: “The French Football Federation shares the emotion that shakes the nation following the tragic events of Friday in Paris and around the Stade de France.

“The FFF shares the grief of the bereaved families and relatives.”

Blasts outside the Stade de France came in the 20th minute of France’s 2-0 win over Germany, and were audible inside the stadium.

Germany coach Joachim Low said: “All of us on the bench were a bit scared,”

But the game finished before fans were kept inside the stadium for safety reasons, with many taking to the pitch after the game,
