Belgium v Portugal Friendly Match Cancelled


Belgium soccer federation has cancelled next week’s friendly against Portugal after Tuesday’s terror attacks, which killed more than 30 people.

The game was set to be played next Tuesday, March 29, in Brussels.

The initiative of the suspension emerged from the municipal authorities, who last November promoted the suspension of the friendly between Belgium and Spain due to the attacks that hit Paris.

There are talks now about taking extra precautions for the upcoming Euro Cup, which is only three months away and will take place in France. The local authorities are looking into all possible alternatives, even playing the games without public in empty stadiums.
