"The Saudi Arabian football team were booed by Australian supporters after they failed to properly line up for a minute's silence in honour of the victims of the London Bridge terror attacks."

"Saudi Arabia were preparing to play Australia in a World Cup qualifier at the Adelaide Oval when the stadium announcer called for a minute's silence to begin"

"The Australia team linked arms in a line on the centre circle while the Saudi Arabia team stood in random formation as the silence began."

"The Football Federation of Australia were then unable to persuade Saudi Arabian officials to agree to participate in the tribute. "

"A number of Saudi Arabian players stood still with their arms behind their back while others appeared to continue their warm up."

"Reports suggest that the visitors' substitutes bench also failed to stand to observe the tribute."

Never mind.

Caliphate News Network will provide a PR stunt to show the 'true' veneer of a system riddled with lies.

Had they been told prior to kick off that a minute's silence would be observed?

I would consider banning them from international football over this! I wonder will they go the world cup in Qatar, if they qualify, given their issues with that nation?

"According to Adam Peacock, who works as a presenter for Fox Sports in Australia, the Asian Football Confederation approved the minute’s silence against the wishes of Saudi Arabia. He said

They really did want to send a message didn't they.

Interesting.

Perhaps SA are fearful of inciting ISIS terrorist attacks within their own realm.

It would be a pity if any squabbles were brought onto the football pitch (aside from the standard wendy-ball histrionics).

Anyone remember that great goal they scored in a WC 20 odd year ago?

The Russians hacked the Saudi soccer team.

Actually they hacked into the football.

to be honest, i'd be far, far more concerned about the fact that Trump did a 100Billion€ arms deal with the Saudi regime,
than the antics of a few soccer players.

The laughable thing is he didn't.

No agreements were signed.

The Saudis simply said they intended in the future to buy up to €100 bn in arms sales.

Trump claimed the credit.

He done something similar this week with the privatization of Air Traffic Control. He held a ceremony where he signed a instruction memo. The bill is going nowhere in the Senate so basically he signed nothing of importance.

At least, the Aussies won 3-2.

I recall some Bosnian fans being far less than respectful during a minute's silence in Dublin in November 2015 after the Paris attacks.
