Global soccer community responds to Brussels terror attacks
Bomb blasts in Brussels killed at least 31 people and injured over 175 more on Tuesday, according to the latest reports.
A worldwide outpouring of grief and support for the victims soon spread across social media, and players of the Belgian national team, who canceled Tuesday's practice in the immediate aftermath, took to their own accounts to post thoughts and prayers.
Just as like after previous terrorist attacks in Paris and Ankara, the global football community stood in solidarity with its affected colleagues.

1) Horrified and revolted. Innocent people paying the price again. My thoughts are with the families of the victims. #Brussels— Vincent Kompany (@VincentKompany) March 22, 2016
2) I wish for Brussels to act with dignity. We are all hurting, yet we must reject hate and its preachers. As hard as it may be. #Brussels— Vincent Kompany (@VincentKompany) March 22, 2016
