ROAD TO RUSSIA 2018


The 2018 World Cup in Russia might be more than three years away, but the journey to Moscow for Chinese Taipei begins next month on either Thursday, 12th March or Tuesday, 17th March.  The bottom 1-6 ranked teams in Asia will play home and away against one of the bottom 7-12 teams in Asia.  The six winning teams will qualify for the group stages, guaranteeing them at least another eight World Cup games.

The good news is that Chinese Taipei are not in the bottom six teams in Asia, meaning that they have avoided some of the heavyweights in the competition, such as East Timor or Cambodia.  However, they will still have to overcome one of the following teams:



-          Nepal

-          Macau

-          Pakistan

-          Mongolia

-          Brunei

-          Bhutan


The draw for the matches will take place on 10th February, and may or may not be broadcast live on Sky Sports.  The draw will determine whether Chinese Taipei play at home or away first.  Either way, let’s hope our host country are able to invoke the spirit of 2011, when 20,000 people attended the 4 – 4 away goal defeat to Malaysia, an incredible game which lives on in the memory of everyone who was there.  Feel free to click on the link below if you want to relive the atmosphere:

If anyone would like to go to the game, it will take place at the stadium next to IKEA (DongHua NanJing).  Entry is free and it is unlikely that the stadium will be full (unless Chinese Taipei are playing Bhutan and they bring a lot of away fans).  Unlike games back home, you’re able to buy a bag of beers from 7-11, take them into the stadium and drink them.
