There could be other calls, based on the promised release that England players will not be required to quarantine upon arrival or return to the UK.
– People are not paying attention to the Brazilian team at the moment, it is practically classified – argued Rodrigo Caetano, executive director of Atletico-MG.

In the view of the leaders of Gallo, the leader of Brasileirao would suffer the most from the postponement. They understand that players working in Brazil should not be called at this time of the definition of the championship and selection can only be made by foreign players. Or by a player, because the team has virtually qualified for the World Cup.
At this point, there is a clash of ideas. Flamengo doesn’t want to play when they have called up players and must have Arrascaeta, Isla and Piris da Mota, as well as Gabigol and Uverton Ribeiro. Atlético-MG do not want the Brazilian team to continue and maintain their path to the title for the championship.
The truth is that there is pressure to change the calendar, and the team will play only when the championship is paralyzed. As it has been happening around the world since 1993.
