- FA and Premier League consider tributes to Israeli citizens
- Silence could be held at England’s match with Australia
Sporting bodies are facing pressure to commemorate the victims of the Hamas attacks in Israel, with the UK government considering plans to display its solidarity with a minute’s silence.
With England men’s football team set to host Australia in a friendly at Wembley on Friday, the Football Association is yet to make a decision on whether to honour Israeli citizens who were killed by Hamas last weekend. Discussions over whether to pay tribute will be held by the FA this week, while there is support from at least one Premier League club for a minute’s silence to take place during domestic fixtures following the conclusion of the upcoming international break.
