Does Coquelin deserve a France cap?


France need win after Belgium debacle


Blaise Matuidi needs a rest at PSG and France to get back to his best

Blaise Matuidi
Blaise Matuidi is running out of gas after being heavily leaned upon by both France and Paris Saint-Germain.

Lately, the irrepressible Blaise Matuidi has not been himself for French champions Paris Saint-Germain, nor with France at international level. The 28-year-old enjoyed a strong start to the season, scoring four times and assisting on another two goals in the space of six matches, but since then his impressive scoring exploits have ground to a halt.

That is no problem; it is not really Matuidi's job to score goals for PSG or Les Bleus. However, the France international is expected to bring his...

France players stand strong as Wembley pays tribute to Paris victims

Players and fans around the world have united since Friday to pay their respects following the terrorist attacks in Paris.

Antoine Griezmann left Wembley after France's friendly against England on Tuesday night with tears in his eyes. He walked through the mixed zone in silence, reflecting on what has happened to him, to his family and to France over the last few days.

Griezmann, whose sister escaped unhurt from the Bataclan music hall where 89 people were killed by terrorists on Friday night, cried during the "Marseillaise," sung by the whole stadium and during a minute of silence held for the 129 people who died in...

England defeat France 2-0 amid respectful Wembley atmosphere

France and England fans unite at Wembley to sing the French national anthem ahead of their international friendly.
Players and fans around the world have united since Friday to pay their respects following the terrorist attacks in Paris.

LONDON -- Three thoughts on England's 2-0 friendly win over France at Wembley Stadium.

1. Wembley pays its respects

The result and the match barely mattered, but the occasion definitely did. Wembley and English football paid dutiful remembrance to those who lost their lives in last week's Paris terror attacks.

During the prematch ceremonies, Manchester United forward Anthony Martial mouthed a silent prayer to himself and strike partner Andre-Pierre Gignac was somber during the minute's silence....

At Wembley, England vs. France a symbol of unity and defiance

ESPN FC's Iain Macintosh reports from Wembley, where security for the England vs. France match has reached unprecedented levels.
France and England fans unite at Wembley to sing the French national anthem ahead of their international friendly.

LONDON -- This was no ordinary game of football. It wasn't the heavy police presence that felt odd. Police helicopters frequently buzz Wembley Stadium before big matches, mounted police usually canter back and forth, and brightly jacketed officers can always be spotted at every junction. That's all normal. But it's not normal for police officers to clutch submachine guns as they patrol. Not in England. Not at a football match.

Stranger still, but far less foreboding, was the atmosphere for England...

Francis Coquelin's meteoric rise yet to be capped with France call-up

An animated Francis Coquelin and Laurent Koscielny are in the commentary box for Arsenal's game against Stoke City earlier in the season.

When France face England at Wembley, it will undoubtedly be a poignant occasion for all concerned. The eyes of both nations will be glued to Wembley Stadium for what it's hoped will be a heart-warming show of solidarity and sporting excellence. One of those watching on from afar will be Arsenal's Francis Coquelin, who still awaits his first call-up to the senior France squad.

The country of his birth will be facing off against the nation where he has made his professional life, and yet he is not...

England and France's show of solidarity following terror in Paris

Roy Hodgson says England's game against France isn't about a result, but about showing solidarity with the French people.

England's friendly with France on Tuesday will not likely be recalled for football reasons. After Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris, the sport will take a back seat to symbolism and unity.

London is reportedly home to over 300,000 French people and English fans have been asked to sing La Marseillaise, the French national anthem, as a show of solidarity.

The game goes on in the face of terror, as was decided by the French Football Federation in the aftermath of Friday's horrors, though security...
