Nepal VS Australia World Cup Qualifier match postponed

Kathmandu, Nepal

Nepal VS Australia, a world cup qualifier match scheduled for March 30 in Kathmandu has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Socceroos had been due to travel to Kathmandu to face the Nepali national football team on March 30 in their first international match since defeating Jordan in Amman in November 2019.

The game will be one of eight in Group B to be played in a centralised hub as Asian nations continue to struggle to complete the region’s second round of qualifying for Qatar 2022.

The postponed match is the second qualification round match between Nepal and Australia. Earlier in October, 2019, Australia played Nepal in Canberra, beating Nepal 5 – 0.

The Australians lead Group B by two points from Kuwait, who have played one game more than the Socceroos.

Jordan and Chinese Taipei complete the group, with only the first-place finishers certain to progress to the next round of Asia’s qualifying competition for the finals.

Three qualifying matches are still scheduled to be played in March.

The remainder of the qualifiers will be played between May 31 and June 15 in centralised hubs.
