  •  

BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) - Russia's World Cup qualifier at Northern Ireland has been postponed for a second straight day due to wintry weather.

Heavy snow initially led to the match being postponed on Friday. Additional snow fell on the field Saturday and ice formed.

No new date was set.

Russia (4-0) leads Group F with 12 points, four ahead of Israel and Portugal (both 2-1-2). Northern Ireland (0-1-3) has three points, ahead of Azerbaijan on goal difference, and Luxembourg (0-3-2) is last with two.

Northern Ireland hosts Israel on Tuesday. Portugal, held to a 3-3 draw at Israel on Friday, is at Azerbaijan and will play without Cristiano Ronaldo, suspended for accumulation of yellow cards.
