In light of the terrorist attacks that took place at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, last week, a handful of soccer teams and players took the pitch and paid tribute to the victims.

Fifty people were reported dead with dozens more injured in the attacks. Kosta Barbarouses made a heartfelt tribute on the pitch after scoring a goal by dropping to his knees and touching his head to the ground in an apparent gesture to Muslim prayer after scoring his first goal for Melbourne Victory against Brisbane Roar.  

There were other tributes as Wellington Phoenix and Western Sydney Wanderers joined together in the center circle to honor the victims. 

The famous haka was also performed by Rugby players. 

In tragic times, sports teams are coming together to pay their respects.
