Nice Attack: UEFA to start nearest football matches with moment of silence
Leading football authority ‘shocked’ upon the terrorist act in France
‘We would like to express our solidarity with the nation of France and our sincere condolences to the families of the victims. We would also like to express our solidarity with the people of the city of Nice, who were tremendous hosts for us during UEFA EURO 2016. There will be a minute of silence at both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League third qualifying round draws in Nyon. Players at the UEFA European Under-19 Championship fixtures today will also observe a silence and wear black armbands in memory of the victims’, reads the statement on the UEFA official website.
Most recently, Nice and the local Allianz Riviera stadium hosted matches of Euro 2016. In particular, the arena in Nice became the venue of the struggle between England and Iceland, the game of the round of the last 16. Back then, Iceland surprisingly defeated the Three Lions and made it to the competition’s quarterfinals.
As is known, at least 80 people deceased, about 150 more were wounded in the terrorist attack in Nice, France. The terrorist, presumably ISIS militant, ran into the crowd as he was driving and shooting people in streets. The police killed him and later found more weapons and explosives in the truck. Identity papers of a French-Tunisian were also discovered, according to a police source.
