All eyes tomorrow, November 17, will of course be on the match between the national teams of England and France and their friendly at London’s Wembley Stadium. The same day, Germany will play a friendly match against the Netherlands. Both matches were close to being cancelled following the Paris terrorist attacks. Both matches will take place.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has announced that she will be attending tomorrows match at the 49.000 capacity AWD Arena in Hannover accompanied by a number of ministers of her cabinet.

"The message is clear: we will not allow ourselves to be intimidated by terrorism. The fact the team will run out for a friendly against the Netherlands a few days after the bad experiences in Paris sends a message," said German FA (DFB) interim president Reinhard Rauball.
