UEFA said it cancelled the Norway Vs Romania Nations League game because Norway could not travel to Romania after a COVID-19 case in the squad.
Norway risks a 3-0 loss by forfeit for not fulfilling the match scheduled on Sunday in Bucharest.
UEFA said it sent the case to its disciplinary committee for a decision.
The case could cost Norway dearly. The team is currently level with Austria at the top of their group in second-tier League B. They are due to meet in Vienna on Tuesday in the final round.
Now here are the offshoots: the group winner gets two rewards, i.e. (1) Promotion to the top tier of the next Nations League and (2) a potential place in World Cup qualifying playoffs scheduled in March 2022 to advance to the tournament in Qatar later that year.
