Socceroos: Lebanon awaits in the AFC World Cup Qualifiers

The Subway Socceroos are back following their AFC Asian Cup campaign. Throughout March they will play two home/away FIFA World Cup Qualifiers against Lebanon.

The first match will take centre stage at CommBank Stadium in Sydney on Thursday, 21 March with the away fixture set to take place the following Tuesday in Canberra.

Graham Arnold's men feature alongside Lebanon, Palestine and Bangladesh in Group I. They currently top the group after two matches played which saw them put seven unanswered goals past Bangladesh before backing that up with a 1-0 win against Palestine in November.

Lebanon sit in second having accrued two points in as many matches - a 0-0 stalemate with Palestine and a 1-1 draw against Bangladesh.
