Belgium football stars have reacted to Tuesday’s terror attacks in Brussels by condemning the act and paying tributes and showing solidarity to victims and the people of Belgium.
At least 26 people are feared dead and many more wounded following blasts near check-in desks for American Airlines and Brussels Airlines before another explosion was reported at Maelbeek Metro station.nd and showing solidarity with the people of Belgium.
The attacks occurred four days after Salah Abdesalem, a fugitive wanted in connection with attacks in Paris last November, was captured in the city’s neighbourhood of Molenbeek.
Some of the country’s notable names in the round leather game took to twitter to pay tributes to those who have lost their lives in the terror attacks.
I can’t believe what happened this morning. My thoughts are with the victims, their family, friends and loved ones.
