Norwich City have confirmed that Congo Dr striker Dieumerci Mbokani is unharmed after travelling through Zaventem Airport at the time of this morning’s terrorist attacks in Brussels.

The Premier League club in a statement on their website say Mbokani, a Congolese international who joined on loan from Dynamo Kyiv in the summer, was “unharmed but shaken” by the incident in the Belgian capital.
“The club is in constant dialogue with Dieumerci, who has now returned home to be with his family. The thoughts of everyone at Norwich City are with the victims of the atrocities in Belgium today and their relatives.
“There will be no further statements from the club or Dieumerci Mbokani at this time.” The statement read.
Meanwhile, the Belgian national football team have cancelled a training session scheduled for this morning.
“Our thoughts are with the victims,” a statement on the Royal Belgian Football Association’s Twitter account stated.
Belgium are due to play Portugal in an international friendly at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels on Tuesday March 29 before travelling to face Switzerland the following Saturday.
