The national anthems were reversed in a mark of respect, with “La Marseillaise” played before “God Save the Queen”.

The words of “God Save the Queen” were projected on giant screens to help French fans sing along, and the popular sports newspaper L’Equipehad already printed out all the words to encourage their readers to join in with the England fans.
