Soccer-South Korea v China women’s Olympic qualifier to be held in April

The South Korean women’s team will play their Olympic qualifying games against China on April 8 and 13 in Goyang and Suzhou after multiple postponements due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said on Wednesday.

The clash was scheduled to take place in February last year but was rescheduled four times due to the pandemic before the Tokyo Olympic Games were postponed to this year.

South Korea, ranked 18th in the world and three places below China, will host the first leg at the Goyang Stadium, northwest of Seoul, on April 8.

The return leg will be played at Suzhou Olympic Sports Centre in China on April 13 to determine Asia’s last place at the Games.

The winners will join Australia and hosts Japan in the Tokyo Games which will be held from July 23 to Aug. 8.
