Old Trafford falls silent for Her Majesty

Before Utd v Real Sociedad, all inside the stadium stood in silence as a mark of respect for Her Majesty, The Queen...

A minute’s silence was held before kick-off which allowed the teams, match officials and everyone in attendance to pay their respects to Her Majesty, The Queen.

Both teams wore black armbands and the flags at Old Trafford are at half-mast as a sign of our utmost respect.
