Brussels - Belgium's
friendly against Portugal next week has been moved to the Portuguese city of
Leiria from Brussels because of the deadly attacks.
The Belgian federation says
on Wednesday it reached agreement with its Portuguese counterpart, hours after
the match was called off.
It was scheduled for next
Tuesday at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels.
At least 34 people were
killed in Tuesday's bombings at the Brussels airport and metro, while more than
200 were wounded.
The country is at its
highest terrorism alert level, meaning there's a risk of an imminent attack.
Belgium, one of the favourites
to win this summer's European Championship, has cancelled training for the
friendly since the attacks.
