Belgium's international friendly against Portugal on 29 March has been cancelled in the wake of Tuesday's (22 March) terrorist attacks. The game was set to be staged at the King Baudouin Stadium in north-west Brussels, but has been called off for "security reasons and precaution".

The announcement came shortly after the Belgian national team decided against training for a second day after the terrorist attacks at Zaventem airport and on a rush-hour metro train, which led to more than 30 deaths.

"For security reasons and precaution, the City of Brussels has asked the Belgian FA to cancel the match Belgium - Portugal on 29 March," a statement from the Belgian Football Association said. "The match of our Belgian Red Devils against Portugal, scheduled Tuesday night at the King Baudouin Stadium, will not take place."

Belgium are among the favourites to win the European Championships in France, and the friendly game against Portugal was a key part of their preparations. Their last international game against Spain in November 2015 was also cancelled in the wake of the Paris attacks.
