“It should be obvious that we should support our Swedish national teams by wearing the blue-yellow national team shirt, but yesterday we tragically lost two blue-yellow supporters in Brussels.” We are praying for all the victims’ families, who must wake up to an unfathomable sorrow today.

We also have all of your supporters in our thoughts while they are in Brussels. We know that you were anxious and terrified just like us. However, you maintained your composure and heeded the directions that were announced through the speakers.

“Those who were the victims of this senseless attack are people we will never forget.” Look out for one another.

Olsen has reshared the text along with an emoticon of a broken heart on his personal Instagram story. The Villa custodian would have earned his 69th cap for his country during the match.
