ESPANYOL SUSPENDS FRIENDLY: EL PERIODICO reported La Liga side Espanyol has suspended a friendly scheduled to be played this weekend against Saudi club Al Ittihad in Libya. The match was "originally scheduled for August, but Espanyol backed out due to security concerns." The recent decision was made after José Riera, a Spanish ambassador in Libya, advised the team not to "come to Libya and take unnecessary risks." The agreement "for a game between the teams is still in effect and Espanyol is hoping to find an appropriate date in the next few weeks" (EL PERIODICO, 10/8).
