Brazil ask FIFA to ban 8 Premier League players

Eight Brazil players are set to be missing from Premier League games at the weekend after the Brazilian federation invoked a FIFA rule that will temporarily suspend them. Premier League clubs had collectively voted to ban players from linking up with their national teams this month if it meant travel to and from a country on the UK government’s coronavirus red list, which includes Brazil, Argentina and Turkey among others. There were fears that any travel from such countries to the UK could pose a health and safety risk to players and staff, as well as having a disruptive effect because of enforced quarantines. There were eight Brazilian players called up for international duty with the Selecao. They were Liverpool trio, Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino, Manchester City pair Ederson and Gabriel Jesus, Chelsea’s Thiago Silva, Manchester United’s Fred and Leeds’ Raphinha. But their respective clubs all blocked from them travelling. That is against FIFA’s rules, which obligates clubs to release any player called up for international duty.
