Minute’s silence held in tribute to Queen Elizabeth II at start of second half of Arsenal’s Europa League match against FC Zurich September 9, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
A minute’s silence was held at Arsenal’s Europa League clash at FC Zurich following the passing of Her Majesty the Queen.
The match started before Buckingham Palace announced the passing of Elizabeth II, who was 96 years old.
And as a mark of respect to the iconic British monarch, a minute’s silence was held before the start of the second half at the Stadion Letzigrund.
The match then resumed with Arsenal claiming a 2-1 victory in the Group A clash.
Marquinhos put the Gunners ahead in the 17th minute before Mirlind Kryezin scored a penalty just before half time.
Mikel Arteta’s side retook the lead as Eddie Nketiah headed in a cross from the right on 62 minutes.
A minute’s silence was later impeccably observed at both Old Trafford and the London Stadium, with black armbands being worn.
At the West Ham match, a spontaneous rendition of ‘God Save The Queen’ was sung by the home supporters ahead of their 3-1 win comeback win over FCSB.
