Saudi Arabia footballers ignore minute's silence for London attack victims
2017-06-09, 10:50 AM,
Saudi Arabia’s national football team have been criticised for failing to observe a minute’s silence held before Thursday’s match against Australia in Adelaide.

The Socceroos lined up in the centre of the pitch before the World Cup qualifier and held the brief silence as a tribute to the two Australians killed in the terrorist attack in London at the weekend. As they did so, the Saudi Arabia team continued jogging, passing the ball between each other and taking their positions on the field. Pictures from the match show a single Saudi player, Salman al-Faraj, appearing to stand facing the Australia team with his hands behind his back.

Hopefully the Saudi team will get a suitable reception if they ever play in London or Manchester.

That is bad, I don't expect such things from international team.

Presumably they believe Allah would punish them severely for such a trangression.

I think the saudi arabians were not aware of these one minute silence thing.
