Japan’s 2022 World Cup qualifying game in the Asian second round against Myanmar, scheduled for March 25, has been postponed, the Japan Football Association announced Friday. The Group F game was to be played at Yokohama’s Nissan Stadium. However, following the Feb. 1 military coup in Myanmar, the Asian Football Confederation has approved a request for postponement from the nation’s soccer federation. Japan currently lead the five-nation Group F with four wins from four matches. The Samurai Blue’s next game will now be against Mongolia on March 30 at Chiba’s Fukuda Denshi Arena.
