A tragic bridge collapse in the Italian city of Genoa killed 43 people on Aug. 14, and on Sunday, supporters of the Serie A club, Genoa FC, stayed silent for nearly an entire half to honor the victims’ memories.

The only significant crowd noise before the 43-minute mark came on the two early goals from Genoa. But even then, it was a subdued celebration.
