Luxembourg to play Belarus despite food poisoning

Luxembourg will play Belarus in Minsk as scheduled despite 16 of their players having been struck down with food poisoning.

Luxembourg's Euro 2016 Group C qualifier against Belarus has been scheduled to go ahead on Tuesday despite numerous members of the visitors' squad contracting food poisoning.

A total of 16 players complained of "terrible stomach aches" after eating a meal on Sunday at the team's hotel in Minsk.

The Duchy nation had contacted UEFA about possibly rescheduling the game, but a team spokesperson is quoted by BBC Sport as saying that the players are feeling "much better".

Both Luxembourg and Belarus are already out of contention for qualifying for next year's tournament in France.
