Saudi Arabia to host Iraq’s home World Cup qualifier

The upcoming World Cup qualifier between Iraq and the United Arab Emirates that was to be the first official international match in Baghdad since the 2003 US-led invasion has been switched to Saudi Arabia.

Sunday’s missile attack on the northern city of Erbil prompted the switch to Riyadh for Thursday’s game, FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation announced Saturday.
