'No decision yet' on Tuesday's England-France friendly

The Football Association has issued a clarification amid claims that Tuesday's England friendly with France has been postponed.

In a series of tweets, the FA offered its "deep condolences" to the victims of the violence and appeared to suggest that no decision had yet been made over the game, due to be held at Wembley.

QPR sack Chris Ramsey

Chris Ramsey has been sacked as head coach of QPR.

It comes after last night's one-nil defeat to Derby, which left them 13th in the league.

Former QPR boss Neil Warnock has been put in charge temporarily.

Director of Football, Les Ferdinand, said:

We've made this decision in the best interests of the football club.

It’s no secret that we expected to sell some key players in the summer transfer window, and as such, our target at the start of the season reflected that.

However, keeping these players at the club has seen the mandate change, owing to what we believe this squad is capable of.

We're all desperately disappointed it hasn't worked out with Chris. He has had to deal with this shift in expectation and has worked incredibly hard in doing so.

– Les Ferdinand

The club says it will get the recruitment process to find a new Head Coach underway immediately.
