Despite claiming they are “confident” that the Premier League’s athletes will be released for the next World Cup qualifiers – against Venezuela, Colombia and Uruguay – the Brazilian team’s technical committee still has no official confirmation of this. We have eight players who play in the Premier League. Last month, all athletes playing for teams in England were banned by their clubs and did not turn up.
The impasse arose after the English refused to release the players, claiming they had lost. This is because, in the UK, people who have traveled to South America must complete a 10-day quarantine before returning to activities.
The time is different now and there is a release agreement – the Brazilian Football Confederation has waived its demand to implement a rule that would prevent players from being selected for five days after the FIFA date, with a promise to release them. Now – but the official identification won’t happen until next week.
“We chose to release athletes to play past history, with the commitment of Premier League clubs (English Championship) and FIFA (from version) On that date now October. There have already been several positive encounters and meetings with FIFA, the Prime Minister and the British government, and we are confident that next week there will be a positive solution to these cases, which is why we have called”, said the selection coordinator, Juninho Paulista: “What has been conveyed to us is that It has not been confirmed, but that confirmation will be available soon.”
On the list announced on Friday are eight players who play in English football. Goalkeepers Alisson (Liverpool), Ederson (Manchester City), right-back Emerson (Tottenham), defender Thiago Silva (Chelsea), midfielders Fabinho (Liverpool) and Fred (Manchester United), strikers Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) and Ravenha (Leeds).
