Russia – The friendly between Russia and Paraguay scheduled for Monday in Moscow was canceled following Friday’s attack in Krasnogorsk. So far, local authorities have reported that 115 people have died in the attack and another 187 have been injured, including at least five children.

“Due to the attack”, claimed by the jihadist group Islamic State and carried out in a concert hall near the capital, “the Russian Football Union and the Paraguayan Football Federation have decided to cancel the friendly match between the Russian and Paraguayan national teams”, the RFS said in a statement.

The match, which would have been held at Dynamo Moscow’s stadium this Monday, could take place on a new date, the Russian football federation added. Russia has been suspended from official FIFA and UEFA matches since 2022 due to the war against Ukraine.
