One of the most touching moments, according to the BBC’s Phil McNulty, who attended the game, was when the teams broke protocol and mixed to take a group photo, “a gesture of unity that prompted huge applause around the stadium.”
“It was a very moving moment and the minute’s silence was beautifully observed,” McNulty wrote on Tuesday. “And it has been clear from the moment Wembley’s doors opened that the French following are very appreciative of the understanding, support and sympathy they have been afforded.”
Fans in attendance also sang “La Marseillaise,” the French national anthem, in unison.
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls especially appreciated that, tweeting in French, “La Marseillaise at Wembley. Two peoples in unison. Immense emotion. Freedom. Equality. Brotherhood.”
Prince William also joined coaches Roy Hodgson of England and Didier Deschamps in laying out flowers to memorialize the victims in the attacks that killed at least 129.
