France host Wales at the Stade de France on Friday evening (Saturday morning AEDT) in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis as part of their preparation for next year's FIFA World Cup. On November 13, 2015, suicide bombers blew themselves up outside the stadium during France's game against Germany, killing one bystander.

The French football federation say FIFA have accepted that all France players will wear an armband with a blue cornflower, 'the symbol of the duty of memory and solidarity with the veterans and victims of the terrorist attacks of Nov. 13, 2015, in Paris and Saint-Denis'.
