Yemen game moved to UAE

The 2012 Olympics football qualifier against Singapore will now be played in Al Ain.

Yemen's twice-delayed 2012 Olympic football qualifier against Singapore will now be played in the UAE.

Fifa and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) chose Al Ain as a neutral venue after deciding Yemen's capital Sanaa was unsafe due to the unrest.

The AFC says the two-legged tie will be played as a doubleheader on March 19 and 21 at Khalifa Stadium.

Yemen were scheduled to host the first leg on February 23. The game was postponed for one week to see if Sanaa would become any safer.

Singapore forfeited their right to host a match so that Yemen did not lose any home advantage.
