English and French players, fans and officials joined forces in a show of solidarity as La Marseillaise was roared by all sides on an emotional night at Wembley.
It was a defiant display of support in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday. Prince William was among those to lay a floral tribute before the game and both sides also mixed around the centre circle for an impeccably observed minute's silence.
Here we look at how Twitter reacted:
