The 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ second leg qualifier between Myanmar and China PR, originally scheduled to be played in Yangon, will now take place in Malaysia on 28 October. The decision was taken after both the Myanmar Football Federation and the Chinese Football Association requested for the contest to be played on neutral ground.

FIFA is to finalise the exact venue, although it will not be Kuala Lumpur which will instead host the qualifier between Malaysia and Bahrain on the same day. China and Myanmar will contest the first leg of their preliminary in Foshan, in southern Guangdong province, on Sunday.
