BEIJING: The Asian Zone World Cup 2022 qualifying matches scheduled to be played at a centralised Chinese venue will be moved elsewhere owing to coronavirus-related travel restrictions. The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said on Monday the Group A matches would be relocated to 'a neutral venue, which will be decided and announced in the coming days'. "The decision was made due to the mounting challenges faced by several participating teams in travelling to China," a statement said, DPA reported. Group A consists of China, Syria, the Maldives, Philippines and Guam and the remaining matches were to be played in Suzhou between June 3 and June 15. IANS
