Following Friday's attacks in Paris that left over 100 people dead, David Beckham posted a tribute to Paris during its time of need. Part of the coordinated attacks happened outside the Stade de France, north of Paris, where the French and German national soccer teams were playing an exhibition match.
Beckham was already scheduled to play today in a charity match to benefit Unicef. The game marks Beckham serving as a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador for ten years. Players will wear black armbands and observe a moment of silence during the game for the victims of the attacks in Paris.
As the sun rises in this beautiful city we remember the people that died and the families that lost loved ones. Our thoughts are with you all. Pray for Paris.
In Manchester today, at the Match for Children in aid of UNICEF, Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham and players will be paying tribute to those who have lost their lives with a minute’s silence and by wearing black armbands. The match will see players and fans of all nations come together to unite and help create a safer world for every child around the world.
While it is regrettable that tributes must be paid today, hopefully strength and solidarity in the face of adversity helps Paris begin to heal.
