Beyond the deadline

The well known bad diplomatic relations is still ongoing between North Korea and Malaysia. These two countries had to play in Pyongyang on 28 March the first round of qualifiers for the Asian cup. The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) had been given a deadline by 14 April to the host to propose a neutral venue. Because that date has now been surpassed, last Thursday it was announced that the AFC itself will try to find a third country to act like the 'host' for these two teams which supposed to take place 08 June. Final decision on whether the above two teams will play their match on neutral ground will be known one month earlier - on 08 May.
