    Marc Wilmots is coaching Iran. I doubt he'll succeed there. He didn't go very well with Belgium (2016) and Côte d'Ivoire.

    This may cause us some issues but we will see. Not sure how we can host international football matches with the current restrictions our Government has in place and three of those games are home fixtures for us. Maybe something can be worked out.

    Neutral venues, perhaps? I wonder if the bigger teams will be willing to do that though. Before all the fixtures got postponed, China's FA arranged two of their matches to be played in Thailand.

    Neutral venues is a possibility, although Australian based players may have to serve some sort of quarantine on return. The FFA has a few things to sort out before then.

    The remaining matches have been postponed again and will take place next year. Dates are yet to be confirmed.

    I remember back in the 80s and 90s, growing up in Oman, watching the AFC qualifiers... the final round of qualifiers for both the 1990 and 1994 world cups were a single game round robin on around 6 teams played in Doha over a couple of weeks. Was actually kind of exciting, I remember UAE qualifying due to Qatar scoring twice against China in injury time and Iraq equalizing in the last minute eliminate Japan and send South Korea through. Anyhoo, my point is, I'm wondering if this is what it eventually comes to if qualifiers keep getting delayed.
