Moments before the soccer teams of England and Italy kicked off an important match Oct. 17 in London, the players bowed their heads as the announcer at Wembley Stadium read out a short text and asked fans to observe a minute’s silence.

The same scene played out at other national team games elsewhere in Europe all last week, part of an edict issued by European soccer’s governing body to all of its members calling for the remembrance of "all the members of the European football family killed in recent days in Europe and Israel.”

But viewers tuning in for the games on the Qatari-owned network beIN Sports saw none of it.
