    MOSCOW, FEBRUARY 26 (RIA NOVOSTI) - Slated for Thursday, the trial soccer game between the Central Army Club (CSKA) Moscow and the club of the second Dutch division Wenlo has been canceled owing to a heavy snowfall, the CSKA press service reports. Instead, the CSKA team, now on a pre-season session in the Netherlands, will have two training sessions.

    The decision to cancel the match was taken by the CSKA chief coach Arthur Jorje. Last night about 5 centimeters of snow fell in the Netherlands, whose Wenlo stadium has no heating. Since the risk of injuries is higher in such conditions, the holding of the trial game has been found irrational.

    In the Netherlands, before the start of a new season the CSKA has held two trial games, winning both: 3:0 from Walweik and 2:0 from Willem II.

    On March 2 Russia's champion will play one game against a yet unknown rival. The CSKA will come back to Moscow on March 3.
