BANGKOK — A World Cup qualifier hits Rajamangala National Stadium on Tuesday and commuters are advised to avoid the area in the evening unless they’re among the tens of thousands of football fans going to the match.

Thailand faces Australia starting at 7pm for the possibility of going to Russia in 2018. More than 50,000 people are expected to attend the game, according to Lt. Col. Rangsan Bamrung of Hua Mak traffic police.

Commuters are advised to avoid Ramkhamhaeng Road and the area near the stadium if possible. Those attending are encouraged to use public transportation, Rangsan said.
