    The Socceroos next World Cup qualifier will likely be moved to a neutral venue as Thailand mourns the death of its beloved king. Cheap Nike Air Max 90 .Australia were set to play their final fixture of the year at Bangkoks Rajamangala National Stadium on November 15 (November 16 AEDT).But this weeks passing of 88-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the worlds longest-reigning monarch, has plunged Thailand into a state of grief.In addition to a year of mourning, the government has ruled entertainment will be heavily toned down and festivities avoided for 30 days.While the Socceroos match falls just outside that window, the Football Association of Thailand (FAT) has submitted a formal request to the AFC and FIFA that the match be shifted to an alternate venue outside the country.The FAT has also cancelled all remaining domestic fixtures, including the Thai League and League One.The most likely outcome is that the game will be shifted to a neutral venue somewhere else in southeast Asia such as Kuala Lumpur or Singapore.The AFC and FIFA could also suggest the match be played somewhere in Australia, in a straight swap that would see the Socceroos visit Thailand next year instead.However, that would be a highly unlikely proposition given the logistics FFA would face in tying down a free venue at such short notice.The Socceroos 1-1 draw with Japan this week has seen Ange Postecoglous team slip to second in their final-phase qualifying group for Russia 2018, two points behind new leaders Saudi Arabia.

EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Columbus Blue Jackets started slowly. The way they finished was all that mattered, though.Sam Gagner had a goal and an assist, and the streaking Blue Jackets won their seventh straight game by beating the Edmonton Oilers 3-1 on Tuesday night.I thought the team took a little while to get going. But once we started playing, I thought we had a good second half of the game, Gagner said. I think were on a good run here and we want to keep pushing forward.Cam Atkinson and Matt Calvert also scored to help the Blue Jackets (18-5-4) improve to 8-0-1 in their last nine games.Tyler Pitlick had the goal for the Oilers (15-12-5), who have lost five of six.The Oilers got a 4-minute power play to start the second period on a mistaken call after Edmonton forward Milan Lucic accidentally caught teammate Connor McDavid in the face with his stick.Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, who made 33 saves, squashed Edmontons opportunity to take a two-goal lead, and Columbus went on to score three consecutive goals.You do get some momentum from killing it, Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. I dont think we panicked. I didnt think we competed that hard in the first period, but then we found ourselves.It was Edmontons 32nd game of the season compared to 27 for Columbus, but Lucic said fatigue wasnt a valid excuse.We had more than enough rest over the last two days to be ready for this one, he said. We had the energy we wanted in the first period, but we just couldnt sustain it. We just didnt keep it going for 60 minutes and thats a big reason we lost.Edmonton got on the scoreboard first, just past the midpoint of the opening period as a hard-charging Pitlick got to a rebound in the blue paint and chipped it over Bobrovsky..

The puck went off the toe of his skate and past Edmonton goalie Cam Talbot for Gagners fourth goal in the last four games and 12th of the season.The Blue Jackets made it 2-1 at 7:10 of the third as a pass deflected to Atkinson and he hammered his 11th of the season past Talbot.Columbus added to its lead 1:36 later when Calvert took advantage of a sloppy Oilers line change and rifled a shot off Talbots arm and into the net.The Blue Jackets completely took over in the third and were outshooting Edmonton 12-0 midway through the period.Coming from behind on a team like that, a lot of teams in the league havent been able to do that. And you can put us on the list as well, Oilers coach Todd McLellan said.Game notes It was the first of two meetings between the teams this season. The other one is Jan. 3 in Columbus. ... Oilers D Brandon Davidson played his first game since injuring his shoulder in the season opener Oct. 12 against Calgary.
