The team was to play against Australia in the World Cup qualifier at Adelaide when it was announced that the teams will line-up for a moment’s silence in honor of the victims.

The Australian team stood at attention with arms on each other’s shoulders while the Saudi Arabian team stood in random formation as the silence began.



 

Adam Peacock, a presenter with Fox Sports in Australia, revealed that the Asian Football Organization approved the minute’s silence against the wishes of Saudi Arabia. He also said that while the silence began, a number of Saudi Arabian players stood at one point with their arms behind their backs, while the rest continued with the warm up.

It was also reported that the bench players did not stand for the silence. The Australian team defeated Saudi Arabia with 3-2 to remain at the top with Japan.
