LONDON (AP) — Wayne Rooney scored a record-extending 51st England goal and Dele Alli netted his first in a 2-0 victory over France on an emotional occasion when the victims of the Paris attacks were remembered on Tuesday.
The French players returned to action four days after suicide bombers targeted the Stade de France as they were playing Germany in a friendly. Synchronized attacks throughout the French capital killed at least 129 people on Friday.
Tributes to the victims were paid at Wembley Stadium before kickoff, with both sets of fans singing the French national anthem before a minute’s silence.
The game saw Alli mark his full debut by beating goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, his Tottenham teammate, with a deflected long-range strike.
Rooney netted in the 48th minute after meeting Raheem Sterling’s cross.
