 FIFAs removal of home qualifications for the World Cup in Iraq is no longer a concern for the national football team


The news also means that Syria can no longer choose the city of Iraq as its host city for the final 40 of the 2022 World Cup qualifying tournament. This is definitely not bad news for the Chinese team.

The Syrian Football Association (SFA) has been concerned about the possibility that Syria will host its top 40 tournament in Kabala, Iraq, after the draw results of the second stage of the World Cup qualifying Asian region (Fortune 40 tournament) were announced.

Since then, although the Syrian Football Association announced through the official social media at the end of July that it would arrange its home stadium in the United Arab Emirates, there has been no final official statement so far. Just yesterday, news from Iraq showed that FIFA had responded formally to two letters from the Iraqi Football Association to FIFA in July asking FIFA to lift its ban on Iraq (i.e. to cancel the ban on international matches in Iraq). FIFA took into account the fact that there still exists in Iraq. In the face of serious security problems, it was decided to maintain the previous decision of the FIFA Council that FIFAs official matches should not be held in Iraq. FIFA also pointed out that it was not time to consider lifting the ban. FIFA also asked Iraq to remain neutral in the home game of the World Cup preliminaries.
