The Belgian national team has canceled its Tuesday practice after the Brussels Airport and a metro station were bombed in a suspected terrorist attack on Tuesday morning, the Associated Press reports.

The team’s international friendly against Portugal scheduled for next Tuesday may also be canceled, the AP reports.

At least 26 people have been reported dead with 55 injured in the metro bombing alone, with the death toll at the airport reported at 11, according to the AP.

“Our thoughts are with the victims,” the team said on its official Twitter account. “Football is not important today. Training cancelled.”

Multiple international soccer players also tweeted their support and condolences to the victims’ families.
