Aussies Abroad: How COVID-19 is impacting Socceroos around the world

Football leagues across the world have been postponed due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus - so what does it mean for the Socceroos?

The large majority of leagues have suspended competition until April 4 at the very earliest, affecting Socceroos players across the globe.

The Socceroos' scheduled fixtures against Kuwait (home) and Nepal (away) this month, as well as Chinese Taipei (home) and Jordan (home) in June, have been postponed and will be rescheduled with dates to be advised by the AFC and FIFA in due course.
