England's friendly with France at Wembley on Tuesday is still set to go ahead as planned, the French Football Federation (FFF) has announced.

The game has been in doubt since terror attacks on Paris on Friday night which claimed the lives of 127 people and included suicide attacks on the Stade de France, where president Francois Hollande was watching the friendly between France and Germany.

Co-ordinated attacks left the French capital paralyzed, with Hollande having to be driven away from the game after loud explosions were heard just outside the city - he later declared a state of emergency and tightened the country's borders.

Three people died in the explosions at the Stade de France, with two blasts occurring at the entrance to Gate J and the third at a nearby McDonalds.

Sporting events in and around Paris were postponed for the rest of the weekend, with all of the European rugby matches due to be played across France also called off.

"As we speak the game is on, yes," a spokesman for the FFF told Reuters.
