The Queen spent 70 years on the throne and was the longest-serving monarch in the world before her death.
Her death has expectedly seen a global response with games in the Premier League and EFL already cancelled this weekend.
At least seven Nigerian players are in the Premier League and will not be involved this weekend while others in the EFL will also not play as previously scheduled.
