Scotland's Euro 2020 play-off against Israel has been postponed until June due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The crucial clash will take place in the summer subject to future public health advice regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Steve Clarke's Scots are set to welcome the Israelis to Hampden and if victorious will travel to either Norway or Serbia for a one off match for a spot at the Euros.

We told how the European championships have been put back until 2021 as a result of the outbreak.

The competition was scheduled to take place in twelve cities across Europe from June 12 to July 12 2020. The proposed new dates are June 11 - July 11 2021. 

Announcing the decision, Uefa president Aleksander Čeferin said: “We are at the helm of a sport that vast numbers of people live and breathe that has been laid low by this invisible and fast-moving opponent. It is at times like these, that the football community needs to show responsibility, unity, solidarity and altruism.

“The health of fans, staff and players has to be our number one priority and in that spirit, UEFA tabled a range of options so that competitions can finish this season safely and I am proud of the response of my colleagues across European football. There was a real spirit of co-operation, with everyone recognising that they had to sacrifice something in order to achieve the best result.

“It was important that, as the governing body of European football, UEFA led the process and made the biggest sacrifice. Moving EURO 2020 comes at a huge cost for UEFA but we will do our best to ensure that the vital funding for grassroots, women’s football and the development of the game in our 55 countries is not affected. Purpose over profit has been our guiding principle in taking this decision for the good of European football as a whole.

“Football is an uplifting and powerful force in society. The thought of celebrating a pan-European festival of football in empty stadia, with deserted fan zones while the continent sits at home in isolation, is a joyless one and one we could not accept to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the competition."
