UAE reschedules FIFA World Cup qualifiers to October and December

The UAE is set to resume its 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign later in the year.

Fixtures had been postponed in reaction to the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the health and safety of players and spectators.

Following a meeting with the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), the UAE Football Association have announced the new dates for vital qualifying matches.

Matches will now be played on October 8 and 13 and November 12 and 17.

The UAE is currently fourth in a five team group, five points off group leaders Vietnam.

The UAE has remaining fixtures against Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and a double-header against Vietnam.

We will be backing the country as they make a push to appear at the second FIFA World Cup finals after competing in 1990 in Italy.
