Various fates of World Cup qualifying plays

At the end of this month even four confederations are scheduled to resume in the World Cup qualifying process towards Qatar 2022. Because the epidemic situation is still leading the main role, on two continents there will be a disruption of matches or in short: couple of them have to be staged on neutral ground, and at one region each of the 10 duels are entirely postponed. Saying this, it means that is going to be played on three regions after all.
The old continent is commencing its journey 20 months (from now) before the biggest sporting event in the world. On 05 March the European football organization has decided to move Portugal - Azerbaijan in Turin (Italy) at 24 March, together with Norway - Turkey in Malaga (Spain) three nights later.
On the other hand, and on a sad note from two days ago, the fifth and sixth round in South America is completely suspended. As always we will not see great football from this region, mainly due to restriction travels between the countries plus the fear of the European clubs to let go their South American stars on a long trip who might be at risk of getting infected with the disease.
From earlier (19 February) it is known that most duels on the Asian part are already postponed. Hence from the announced four, three games have a green light to start.
