There may be further calls, depending on the version promised that players based in England will not be required to quarantine upon arrival or return to the UK.
Atlético-MG CEO Rodrigo Caetano argued, “People are not paying attention to the Brazilian national team at the moment, it is practically classified.”

From the point of view of the Gallo leaders, the one most affected by the postponements will be the leader of Brasileirao. They realize that players operating in Brazil at this moment should not be called to select the tournament and that the selection can only be formed by foreign players. Or by any player, because the team is actually qualified for the World Cup.
At the moment there is a conflict of opinion. Flamengo do not want to play when players are called and must have Arascaeta, Isla and Perez da Motta, as well as Gabigol and Everton Ribeiro. Atlético-MG does not want the Brazilian team to continue to the championship and maintain its path to the title.
The truth is that there has to be pressure to change the calendar, and the team will only play when the tournament is paralyzed. It has been happening around the world since 1993.
