The FA will hold talks with its French counterparts over the weekend to see whether Tuesday's friendly against England at Wembley should go ahead following the terrorist attacks in Paris.

France declared a national state of emergency and has closed its borders on Friday night after dozens of people were killed in multiple shootings in the country's capital.

England are due to host the French national team at Wembley in a friendly on Tuesday.

There was no immediate word from the French Football Federation (FFF) about whether the team still planned to travel to London next week.

The FA will speak to the FFF over the next 24 hours to ask whether the game should go ahead.

"It is a very serious and tragic matter, an FA spokesman said following England's 2-0 defeat to Spain in Alicante.

"If there is any update on the match on Tuesday we will announce in due course.

"We will liaise with the French Football Federation over the weekend.

"The FA sends its deep condolences to the victims of this tragic event but to say anything else would be inappropriate."
