Hey, everyone! There’s still international football to fill that empty place in your soul where Premier League football normally resides. England are at the Stade de France in Paris to take on Didier Deschamps’ France side in a friendly match, because what we need after a World Cup qualifying draw against Scotland is a meaningless game where players can be hurt. But whatever.
There are five Tottenham players selected in the England squad: England Captain Harry Edward Kane™, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Kyle Walker, and Kieran Trippier. Trippier will be handed his first England cap today and his first start!
France Captain Hugo Lloris™ and Moussa Sissoko are both in the France squad, but only Lloris will start the match.
Here’s your open thread!

- Please, no discussion of politics in the comments.
- We have rules against "relentless negativity." Don't knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you're frustrated.
- Along those lines, please do not abuse match officials. It's fine to say "wow, that's a bad call, match official," but it's NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. Observe Wheaton's Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
