Minute's silence for Genoa victims

The FIGC has announced there will be a minute’s silence ahead of all sporting events this weekend after the bridge collapse in Genoa.

The death toll is at least 35 and expected to grow after the Morandi bridge over the Polcevera stream collapsed this morning.

People were killed both on vehicles that were crossing and in the houses that lay below.

Genoa defender Domenico Criscito revealed on Instagram that he and his family had crossed the bridge only 10 minutes before the collapse.

There will be a minute’s silence ahead of all sporting events this weekend, including the opening round of the Serie A season, in honour of the victims.
