Nyon - Spain's national soccer team will pay tribute to the victims of the French Alps plane crash at its European Championship qualifying match on Friday.

Spain's government has said at least 51 Spaniards were among the 150 victims in Tuesday's crash.

UEFA says it approved the Spanish federation's request "for a minute's silence and black armbands to be worn."

Spain, the Euro 2012 champion, hosts Ukraine in Seville.

Germany held a minute's silence before its friendly match against Australia on Wednesday, and both teams wore black armbands.

The Germanwings flight from Barcelona to Duesseldorf, Germany, crashed into a remote mountainside, killing everyone on board.
