Euro qualifying match moved amid spat

BERLIN (AP) - The German soccer federation has moved a European Championship qualifier between Germany and Gibraltar out of Bremen after the city's government decided that organizers should help pay for police deployments at high-risk matches.

The DFB says the match Nov. 14 will now be played in Nuremberg.

This week's decision by the cash-strapped local government in Bremen, the smallest of Germany's 16 states, has drawn strong criticism from the German soccer league and from federal authorities.

DFB President Wolfgang Niersbach says Bremen has broken an agreement with regional governments under which soccer authorities would ''strengthen preventive measures'' but would not be charged for policing.
