Saudi Arabia Football Team Accused Of Disrespecting Minute's Silence For London Terror Attack Victims

Saudi Arabia Football Team Accused Of Disrespecting Minute's Silence For London Terror Attack Victims

The Saudi Arabia national football team are receiving plenty of backlash after appearing to disrespect a one minute silence for the victims of the London terror attack.

Eight people were killed and 48 were injured when three men mowed down pedestrians in a van on London Bridge and then proceeded to stab people in the Borough Market area.

Today in Adelaide, a minute silence was called by the stadium announcer prior to Australia's 3-2 World Cup qualifier win over Saudi Arabia, but the latter team have been embroiled in controversy after they were spotted failing to follow their opponents in lining up and linking to honour those that lost their lives in London on 3 June.

Two Australians were among the victims in Saturday's atrocities, and along with supporters in attendance, the Socceroos starting XI and subs bench remembered those by observing a minute's silence.

However, the opposition side seemed to have proceeded with their warm-up routines and it's caused quite a stir on social media:
