Bangkok floods force Socceroos switch
Sydney: Thailand`s World Cup qualifier against Australia next week has been moved to another stadium in Bangkok because of flooding in the city, Football Federation Australia said on Tuesday.
Starting in the north and northeast of Thailand in late July, flood water has flowed slowly south, overwhelming industrial provinces and rice areas in the centre before moving into Bangkok over the past three weeks.
The original National Stadium venue is being used as an evacuation centre, so the Nov. 15 match has been moved to the Supachalasai Stadium in another part of the capital.
Australia, who are chasing a place at a third successive World Cup finals in 2014, lead Asian qualifying Group D with three wins from three matches.
