Watford, Nov 17: England's soccer mager Roy Hodgson said that he wants his team's supporters to join in with French fans in singing their tiol anthem, La Marseillaise, before Tuesday's friendly intertiol at Wembley Stadium. Following the attacks in Paris on Friday (November 13) which left over 120 people dead, the English Football Association are looking to encourage England fans to show solidarity with the French by singing La Marseillaise. Hodgson, speaking in French, a language he used when coaching Switzerland's soccer team for three years in the 1990s, said that displaying the lyrics to the crowd would help them to sing along, although he somewhat doubted that many in the crowd would know the language as he does.
