Nations Cup postponed

The 2009 Danone Nations Cup has been postponed in the face of the outbreak of swine flu and the tenth edition has been shifted to next year.
The boys from Khulna, the winners of the Bangladesh Grameen Danone Nations Cup, were supposed to represent Bangladesh in the 40-nation meet in Sao Paulo of Brazil from October 7 to 12.
Bangladesh Football Federation, on recommendations from Group Danone and Grameen Danone Foods Limited, took the decision, said a press release.
The organisers, however, decided to hold the 2009 meet and the 2010 meet together and two teams from Bangladesh will represent the country.
