A rematch of the Belgium-Sweden match that was interrupted by a shooting threat will not take place, it has been confirmed.
The Belgian national soccer team played only half-time against Sweden in their Euro 2024 qualifier at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels in the early hours of Sunday morning (local time). The score was 1-1 at the time, but a shocked Swedish Football Federation (SvFF) asked UEFA and the Belgian Football Federation (KBFV) to call off the match after two Swedish soccer fans traveling to Brussels were killed in the aftermath of a gun attack in downtown Brussels around the same time.
At the time, UEFA called in officials from both the Belgian and Swedish federations, as well as the Belgian police, to discuss the matter at length before calling off the match at 1-1. As the match was a Euro 2024 regional qualifier, it was imperative that the game be played one way or the other to determine the standings with a clean ticket to the knockout stages.
However, UEFA decided to finalize the match at 1-1, the score at the end of the match, given the very bad situation in Brussels in the immediate aftermath of the shootings. As a result, both teams will share one point each. 메이저사이트
