Belgium move friendly to Portugal in wake of Brussels attacks

Johannesburg, Mar 23 (ANI): In the wake of deadly terror attacks in Brussels, the friendly soccer match between Belgium and Portugal has been moved out from the Belgian capital to the Portuguese city of Leiria.

The match was called off before the Belgian federation reached an agreement with its Portuguese counterpart, Sport24 reported.

It was originally scheduled to be staged at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels next Tuesday.

At least 34 people were killed in Tuesday’s twin attacks at the Brussels airport and metro, while more than 200 were wounded.

Belgium are considered as one of the favourites to win the upcoming European Championship but had to cancel their training due to the attacks. (ANI)
