Andorra Confirms Premier League Clubs’ Hesitations Unexpectedly

The microstate’s Estadi Nacional is based in the Pyrenees capital of Andorra la Vella, and is the country’s national pitch.

They were going to host the Group I clash between Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions and Koldo Alvarez’s hosts tomorrow.

But the match now appears to be under threat after a blaze broke out at the venue on Friday afternoon.

The fire broke out just some time after teams had held their press conferences ahead of their encounter on Saturday.

Pictures have captured the stadium with flames engulfing what appeared to be a television gantry.

The fire, apparently confining itself to a single side of the field, seemed to have reached the pitch-side monitor too. This is a monitor that typically helps video assistant referee to make their decisions, but the blaze caught it up.

Sky Sports News captured the scenes live, because they were broadcasting a preview of the match from the stadium. That was when the fire broke out, and Sky Sports News have since reported that firefighters have it under control.
