FIFA has recommended postponing all upcoming international matches, including World Cup qualifiers and Euro 2020 playoffs, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

World football's governing body has also relaxed rules which force clubs to release players to their national teams in light of the outbreak of COVID-19.

FIFA said all impending internationals should be called off to "avoid any unnecessary health risks and also situations of potential sporting unfairness".

Qualifiers in Asia and South America for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, scheduled for the March 23 to 31 international window, have already been postponed.
