The French Sports Minister has declared that booing the French national anthem prior to an international friendly match will result in the cancellation of the fixture. Her decision follows Tunisian attempts to drown out the singer of the Marsaillaise at the Stade de France last night, herself of Tunisian origin.

Liechtenstein got off lightly last Saturday, then, as their anthem sounds suspiciously like that of our near neighbours.
