Official match schedule confirmed for AFC U23 Asian Cup qualifiers

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has officially confirmed Australia's kick off times for next week's AFC U23 Asian Cup qualification fixtures against Indonesia. 

The Australia U23's will play Indonesia in Dushanbe, Tajikistan on Tuesday, 26 October 2021 and Friday, 29 October 2021, with both matches kicking off at 5pm local time (11pm AEDT).

Australia had originally been scheduled to play Indonesia, as well as China PR and Brunei Darussalam in Group G of Asian Qualifying, however after the latter two nations withdrew from qualifying the Group B match schedule has been reconfigured. 

As a result, the winner over next week's two fixtures will advance to the AFC U23 Asian Cup 2022, which will be played in Uzbekistan between June 1 and 19, 2022. 

The squad are currently in camp in Dubai ahead of their transit to Tajikistan, and will be coached on an interim basis by Football Australia’s National Technical Director and Joeys (U17s) Head Coach, Trevor Morgan.
