Nepal vs Australia World Cup – Qualification LIVE Football Score 11 June 2021
Australia will aim to pick up their seventh straight win in Group B of the Asian qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup when they take on Nepal on Friday. The match will take place at the Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium.
The hosts, on the other hand, will look to quickly move on from their 3-0 loss to Jordan and return to winning ways. After their friendly fixtures, Nepal resumed their World Cup qualifiers last Thursday as they claimed a 3-0 win over Chinese Teipei.
Anjan Bista and Nawayug Shrestha scored in either half to end Nepal’s three-game losing streak in the group. Abdullah Al Mutairi’s men have picked up six points from seven games and currently sit in fourth place, one spot above rock-bottom Chinese Teipei
Meanwhile, Australia have been simply superb so far in the qualifiers. They sit at the summit of Group B, picking up wins in each of their previous six games. They currently boast the best goal difference in the qualifiers with 24 goals scored and only two conceded. Graham Arnold’s side head into Friday’s game following a 5-1 victory over Chinese Teipei on Monday.
Thirty-year-old forward Mitchell Duke put on a performance of the highest quality as he scored two second-half goals to hand Australia an emphatic win.
