Football in Europe, the restart schedule
The table of the restart of European football: we start again in Germany, Hungary and Serbia, waiting for Italy, England and Spain
The German locomotive could eventually restart the ball. With Angela Merkel’s yes to the resumption of the Bundesliga, football in Europe still has no certainties, given that the main node remains to guarantee the possibility that the championships will reach the finish line without new interruptions, but now has a timetable. Elsewhere you are about to start playing like in South Korea or it has never stopped like in Belarus and Nicaragua.
