Germany’s national soccer team will honor those who died in Tuesday’s plane crash in the French Alps by wearing black armbands during a friendly against Australia on Wednesday. The team tweeted their condolences to the victims and plans to honor them on Tuesday.
“The @DFB_Team will play tomorrow against the @Socceroos with black armbands. #4U9525 #Germanwings #GERAUS,” the tweet reads.
The words beneath the tweet read: “Our deepest sympathy goes out to the families of the victims. Our thoughts are with you.”
The match between Germany and Australia is scheduled for Kaiserslautern, Germany, on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. EDT.
The Airbus A320 operated by Germanwings, the budget arm of German carrier Lufthansa, was flying from Barcelona to Dusseldorf, Germany, when it crashed into the snow-covered peaks of the Alps in southern France. Alpine rescue crews, who struggled to reach the crash site near the ski resort Prads-Haute-Bleone, have found no evidence that any of the 150 people on board survived.
