European football's governing body UEFA announced a "moment of silence" before Tuesday's Euro 2024 qualifiers, in memory of the two Swedish fans shot dead in Brussels.

Two fans were killed and one other injured by a suspected Islamist before Sweden's match against Belgium at the King Baudouin Stadium on Monday.

The Group F encounter was halted at half-time with the score at 1-1, following consultations between the two teams and local police authorities. On Tuesday, the suspected attacker was killed in a police operation.
