This is due to the recent terror attack in Belgum which saw two Sweden fans killed ahead of their clash, along with the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine.
In a social media post, Europe’s governing body for football stated: “UEFA can confirm that a moment of silence will be observed at all UEFA EUR0 2024 qualifying matches tonight in memory of all the members of the European football family killed in recent days in Europe and Israel.”
And as England and Italy’s players remembered those that have lost their lives – along with the majority of supporters in attendance – a few decided to loudly boo, while some were also heard shouting ‘free Palestine’.
Manchester City defender Stones simply shook his head in disbelief, with social media sent into meltdown.
