Saudi Arabia refuses to obey the ‘moment of silence’ in honour of the London Bridge attack victims

Saudi Arabia’s national team will face no sanction from the football governing body, FIFA for failing to respect a minute’s silence for the victims of the London attacks before the start of a World Cup qualifier in Australia, soccer’s global governing body said on Friday.

The Saudi Arabia Football Federation earlier “unreservedly” apologized for the incident, which a former Australian government minister said showed “a disgraceful lack of respect” for the victims of the London attack.

“We can confirm that there are no grounds to take disciplinary action in relation to the matter you mention,” FIFA said.
