FIFA gave the directives on Saturday afternoon as leagues set to commence across Europe.

“The flags are at half-mast at the Home of FIFA in tribute to Diego Maradona.

FIFA has called upon all competition organisers to hold a minute of silence at every football match this weekend, or at the next possible occasion, in Maradona’s honour,” the statements reads.

A minute silent was also observed on Friday in the CAF champions league final between Al Ahly and Zamalek both of Egypt.
