The UK prime minister is set to be in attendance alongside French President Emmanuel Macron as the Three Lions visit Les Bleus

UK Prime Minister Theresa May is set to attend England's friendly away to France on Tuesday.

Lloris stays as France captain

May will be in Paris for talks with France President Emmanuel Macron, and both leaders are expected to be in attendance when Les Bleus host the Three Lions at the Stade de France.

Several tributes, including a moment of silence before kick-off, are planned in the wake of recent attacks in Manchester and London.

Both teams plan to wear black armbands, and the Oasis song 'Don't Look Back in Anger' will play as the teams emerge from the tunnel.

The match will serve as a parallel to France's visit to Wembley Stadium in November 2015, when English supporters provided a rousing rendition of the French anthem 'Le Marseillaise' in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris.
