London - France captain Hugo Lloris paid tribute to England's supporters for the respect they showed his grieving side during their 2-0 defeat in a friendly match at Wembley
Taking place four days after the attacks in Paris that left 129 people dead and over 350 injured, the match was preceded by a stirring rendition of the French national anthem and a solemnly observed minute's silence.
France midfielder Lassana Diarra, whose cousin was killed in the attacks, was granted a warm reception when he came on as a second-half substitute, while Antoine Griezmann, whose sister escaped unhurt from the massacre at the Bataclan theatre, also made an appearance.
"First of all we want to thank all the England people in the stadium for their respect," goalkeeper Lloris said.
"The performance was not there for us and we had a lack of aggressiveness and concentration. It was more about solidarity. Life is still going on, so we need to carry on."
Goals either side of half-time by full debutant Dele Alli and captain Wayne Rooney gave Roy Hodgson's England victory.
