With confirmed cases of the virus now on every continent other than Antarctica, Fifa president Gianni Infantino has not ruled out next month's international fixtures being postponed.England and Wales have friendly matches, while Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland play Euro 2020 qualifiers."People's health is much more important than any game," said Infantino.And while the 49-year-old remains hopeful there will not be too much disruption, he added: "I wouldn't exclude anything at this moment."That's why we have to look at the situation and hope that it will decrease rather than increase. At the moment it looks like it is still increasing."If games have to be postponed or played without spectators until it is over, then we have to go through that."
