    The Yemen national football team has been unable to play at home for three years.

    They are currently in Doha for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against North Korea and Philippines. 

    However, with the airport shut and travelling by road too dangerous, the team endured an 18-hour journey by sea to Djibouti from where they boarded a plane for Doha.
