At the friendly match between Norway and England in Oslo on May 26th, England and Norway players were accompanied by mascots wearing Norwegian Show Racism the Red Card t-shirts and they carried a rose each in respect for those murdered in the tragic shootings of last year.
Anders Behring Breivik killed 8 people and injured 209 with a bomb in Oslo. He then killed 69 people on Utoeya island, of them 34 were aged between 14 and 17. He also injured 33 people on Utoeya.
Breivik denies criminal responsibility, arguing his attacks were necessary to combat multiculturalism and prevent a "Muslim invasion" of Norway and Europe. Experts in far-right ideology have said Breivik's ideas should not be seen as the ramblings of a madman.
A trial is currently determining whether he is sane or insane. In either case he is likely to be locked away for life
