Moldova have made a poor start to their qualifiers ahead of the FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar at the end of next year but they have the chance to make things right when the qualifiers resume in the coming weeks. Moldovan football fans will have the chance to see if their team can secure their first win of the qualifiers when hostilities begin once again in September.

Austria are the next opponents for Moldova on September 1. Moldovan football fans would be hoping to back their team when they welcome Austria to the Zimbru Stadium in Chisinau for their fourth World Cup qualifier ahead of Qatar 2022.

Moldovan football fans are yet to taste victory in the qualifiers after the first three matches. In the first game, Moldova came within minutes of a win before they were denied by a late strike from the Faroe Islands.Meinhard Olsen scored the equaliser for the Faroe Islands with seven minutes left on the clock to deny Moldovan football fans a big win at the start of the World Cup qualifiers. Ion Nicolaescu gave the Moldovans a fantastic start as early as nine minutes but they were unable to hold on for the win.

In the next game, Moldova were on the receiving end of a demolition at the hands of Denmark in what turned out to be their biggest defeat. The Danish team thrashed Moldova 8-0 at home to maintain their place at the top of the standings in Group F of the qualifiers as far as the European section is concerned. In their third and final game before the last international break ended, Moldova were beaten 4-1 at home by Israel to condemn them to the bottom of the group.

As pointed out earlier, the World Cup qualifiers resume on September 1 for Moldova with an home clash against Austria before they face Scotland away from home three days later. On September 7, they will take on the Faroe Islands in their sixth game. They will then face Denmark (home), Israel (away), Scotland (home) and Austria (away) until the qualifiers end in November.
