This Saturday, the British government announced that it is “open to finding a reasonable solution” together with FIFA, the English Federation (FA) and the Premier League, on the possibility that players who are active in the country’s clubs can be called up by the different Latin American teams in the next days of the Conmebol Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The highest body of world football explained in a statement that there are “Positive signs and constructive dialogue” received from the UK government on the triple date of October
Furthermore, “as a sign of good faith, goodwill and cooperation”, the federations of Brazil, Mexico and Paraguay have decided to “withdraw their complaints”, in relation to the players who play in English clubs who were not released to participate in these last matches of this month.
FIFA states that last Wednesday, the presidents of this body, the FA and the Premier League, sent a joint letter to the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, whose government “It is currently open to finding a reasonable solution with the three organizations, which is working closely together showing a spirit of mutual understanding, in the interest of all”.
A news that falls well in the hosts of ‘La Roja’, since for the duels against Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela, Martín Lasarte could count on Francisco Sierralta (Watford) y Ben Brereton (Blackburn Rovers).
