North Korea, Which Refused To Play Pyongyang’s Home Game

North Korea, which refused to play at home in Pyongyang, will be subject to forfeiture without changing its schedule.

FIFA International Football Federation announced on its official website on March 24 that “North Korea and Japan will cancel the second Group B match in Asia for the North and Central America World Cup without delay.”

Earlier, North Korea lost 0-1 to Japan in the third away match of the second qualifying round on Sunday. The fourth match between North Korea and Japan was scheduled to be held in Pyongyang, North Korea on Sunday.

However, FIFA went into discussion after the North Korean soccer association announced that it would not hold a home game against Japan, and decided to cancel the game.

Earlier, AFC Asian Football Federation tried to play the match between North Korea and Japan as scheduled even if it was held in a neutral area, but there were practical problems such as entry period, procedures, and stadium rental.

In the end, FIFA decided to cancel the game. As a result, there is a possibility that the home game between North Korea and Japan will be ruled as forfeited.

Meanwhile, North Korea showed a similar behavior in the second round of Asian qualifiers for the last World Cup in Qatar. At that time, North Korea was in Group H with South Korea. Due to the spread of the coronavirus, all Group H qualifying matches held during the A match were decided to be held by South Korea at Goyang Stadium in June 2021, but North Korea refused to participate in South Korea’s away matches. 사설 토토사이트
