Immediately after the opening kickoff in a match between Greek second-division sides AEL Larissa and Acharnaikos, all 22 players sat down on the pitch for an eerie two-minute protest.
As the crowd waited for the match to start all 22 outfield players — as well as coaches, officials and substitutes — sat down for two minutes in respect of the hundreds of refugees who have died trying to escape conflict or persecution in countries like Syria and Iraq.
Twenty-four people attempting to cross to Europe from Turkey drowned when their boat sank off a Greek island on Thursday.
When the players rose back to their feet, their gesture was celebrated with respectful applause.
These types of protests always make for powerful images.
