This Wednesday, UEFA organized a videoconference meeting with the 55 general secretaries of the member federations of the European Confederation. It was decided to postpone the matches of the national, male and female selections, scheduled for June. These friendly confrontations would have overloaded the calendar which will already be particularly difficult to reorganize when the health situation in Europe will once again make possible the practice of football interrupted because of the coronavirus pandemic.

UEFA has indicated that these national team matches will be postponed, if possible, to next fall. The Euro 2020 play-off matches, initially scheduled from March 26 to 31, are also affected by these postponements.

Priority to championships, National Cups and European Cups

Instead of playing two matches, as initially planned, in September (Sweden and Croatia in the framework of the League of Nations), France could for example, play three. Same in October (Portugal and Croatia) and in November (Portugal and Sweden). For the record, the world champions were to face in friendly in June Ukraine, Finland, two meetings originally scheduled for March 27 and 31, and Croatia.
