In what was the worst attack in France since the end of the second World War, Newcastle players and staff this morning observed a European-wide one minute silence at 11:00 am in honor of the victims of Friday night’s terror attack.

There has been support pouring in from all over the world since the terrible  attack that killed 129 people and critically injured 99.

Here is the tweet from Newcastle United Football Club honoring the victims and showing the full support of our club for the French.
