England: Will face France in June

England will face France in a friendly in Paris in June next year.

The Football Association announced that Sam Allardyce’s men would take on the Euro 2016 finalists at the Stade de France on Tuesday June 13 at 8pm BST.

The match will take place three days after England’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Scotland at Hampden Park.

The two side’s last met last November in an emotional fixture at Wembley following the Paris terror attacks. England won the game 2-0.

England have made a winning start to life under new boss Allardyce, with a last-gasp 1-0 victory in their opening qualifier away to Slovakia.

Didier Deschamps’ France, meanwhile, who lost the European Championship final on home soil to Portugal, were held to a goalless draw in Belarus in their opening qualifier.

England last played away to France in March 2008 in a friendly in which David Beckham won his 100th cap.
