Israel soccer qualifier with Belgium postponed

The Euro 2016 qualifier between Israel and Belgium initially scheduled for September 9 is postponed until March 31, 2015, due to the ongoing conflict in Gaza, the Belgian Federation (URBSFA) announces.

An agreement is reached between the two relevant federations and European governing body UEFA to put back the match, which was expected to take place in Jerusalem.

Israel and Belgium are alongside Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus and Wales in qualifying Group B for the Euro 2016 finals, which will be held in France.
