In times such as this past weekend when tragedy struck in Newtown, CT, soccer and sports in general take a backseat to reflecting on what’s truly important in our lives. And though the games still had to be played, there were several acts of class on display across Europe to send prayers and condolences to the victims and their families across the Atlantic.
From the QPR players insisting on wearing black armbands in their match versus Fulham, to an emotional moment of silence at Celtic Park, to Milan's Antonio Nocerino's goal dedication, take a look at some of the touching images over the weekend.
The moment of silence prior to Celtic’s match against St. Mirren.
Queens Park Rangers, Fulham, Liverpool and Aston Villa players all wore black armbands in tribute to the Sandy Hook victims.
Nocerino dedicated his goal to the children and their families, saying, “everything I did today was only for them.”
