Fifa president Gianni Infantino has not ruled out next month’s international fixtures being postponed, as the spread of coronavirus continues.

England and Wales have friendly matches, while Scotland, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland play Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Fifpro says players have contacted unions “out of fear” and are concerned about games in “high-risk environments”.

Earlier today (Fri), there were a number of other coronavirus-related developments affecting football:

-This weekend’s matches in Switzerland’s top two divisions have been called off.

-Tottenham’s Son Heung-min will self-isolate when he returns from surgery in South Korea.

-Newcastle and West Ham have banned handshakes at their training grounds.

Infantino says he is hopeful next month’s international fixtures will go ahead, but added he wouldn’t exclude anything at this moment.
