Floyd died on May 25, 2020, at the hands of a White police officer in Minneapolis.

The statement read: “FIFA fully understands the depth of sentiment and concerns expressed by many footballers in light of the tragic circumstances of the George Floyd case.

“The application of the laws of the game is left for the competitions’ organizers, which should use common sense and have in consideration the context surrounding the events.
