Before the football classic between England and Germany, players and fans thought of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Rarely has a minute's silence before a football game been as quiet as it was at Wembley on Monday evening.

Regardless of whether it was on the English or German side, the more than 80,000 fans at Wembley stood united in the homage.

A large picture of the Queen was shown on a video screen.

Wreaths were also laid before the game.

The Queen died on September 8th at the age of 96.

King Charles III

was proclaimed king.

For the first time in decades, the English national team sang “God Save the King” instead of “God Save the Queen” at a home game.
