FIFA has a meeting tomorrow (15) with the Premier League to discuss the release of players for the commitments of national teams in October. There will be another meeting with the British Government on Friday (17) on the same subject. The CBF follows the talks and hopes for the return of the FIFA leaders. There is optimism.
Coach Tite will call the Brazilian team for games against Venezuela, Colombia and Uruguay on 7, 10 and 14 on the same Friday (17). Whatever the outcome, the idea is to keep the team working in football on the list. English, yet to mark the position against the clubs.
But there is a truce between the parties, prompting the CBF to back down from applying to FIFA – as provided in the rules – five for players banned from coming to Brazil to play in three qualifying games. “suspension” of the day. at the beginning of the month.
If the demand for approval goes ahead, it will affect Alisson, Firmino and Fabinho from Liverpool, Thiago Silva from Chelsea, Gabriel Jesus and Ederson from Manchester City, Fred from Manchester United, and Rafinha from Leeds. Malcolm and Claudinho from Zenit from Russia.
CBF initially only saved Everton from Richardson, as the club issued a striker for the Olympic Games. The veto accused the clubs of requiring the team to complete the quarantine upon return from Brazil, which is on the UK’s “red list” as a result of the Covid-19 numbers – they would thus lose matches in the competitive English almanac.
In a statement published on Friday, FIFA cited “positive signs and constructive dialogue” with the British government. The organization also held the withdrawal of sentencing requests by Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Paraguay as “a sign of good faith, goodwill and cooperation”.
FIFA also said that on 8 September it had sent a joint letter to the British government in conjunction with the Premier League and the Football Association (CBF of England). According to FIFA’s description, officials will be “open to finding an appropriate solution”.
On another front, the CBF is already triggering a request for exceptionalism for Brazilian authorities so that anyone arriving from England does not have to comply with the quarantine upon arrival in Brazil. Inter-Ministerial Ordinance 655 of 23 June establishes a 14-day isolation for those arriving from the United Kingdom, but establishes an exception if there is an explicit request. Through this legal provision, four players of the Argentina national team were informed because they did not comply with the quarantine and also did not inform the authorities that they were coming from English territory.
“Here, we made the decision with an extraordinary ordinance in which we passed all programming for the Strategic Information and Health Surveillance Response Center (CIEVS). We assume and fulfill this responsibility with federal health officials. Not requested, but strict compliance with determination”, explained Jorge Pagura, chairman of the CBF Medical Commission UOL Sport.
