The Qatar 2022 Qualifiers in America had the Premier League as the protagonist, as some clubs decided not to give up their players. FIFA had indicated that they were obliged to let them go to their call, but that did not happen and now a harsh punishment is coming.
As reported by journalist Christian Martin, the highest governing body of football in the world will not allow teams to use the players they did not let go. The information is not official yet, but everything indicates that it will run this weekend. If this sanction were to take place, Liverpool would be the most affected, since it would lose three key players: Fabinho, Roberto Firmino and Alisson.
Meanwhile, Manchester City could not count on Gabriel Jesús or Ederson, while United would suffer the absences of Brazilian Fred and Uruguayan Edinson Cavani. In the second division, there is the case of Blackburn Rovers and the Chilean Ben Brereton.
In addition, Leeds and Chelsea would also be beaten, because Raphinha and Thiago Silva respectively failed to fulfill their call. The decision not to let them leave for the time that they should spend isolated on their return, in the end could be equivalent to the sanction of FIFA.
