Socceroos to play Syria in Malaysia

Australia Thailand

Victory in the two-legged tie against Australia, who will host the second leg at Sydney's Olympic Stadium on October 10, would send Syria into a playoff against the fourth-placed side from the North and Central America qualifiers.

Malaysia's Hang Jebat Stadium has been confirmed as the host venue for the Socceroos' regional play-off first leg against Syria on 5 October.

The match will kick off at 8pm local time, 11pm AEST. The federation informed the UAE Football Association of their decision.

Syria played its last match in Syria in 2010, before civil war hit the country and they have had to play their global fixtures elsewhere. Three of those came at the Hang Jebat Stadium, where Ayman Al Hakeem's side defeated Uzbekistan and Qatar and drew with China.
