Players to reportedly be released for 2022 World Cup one week before it begins

47

Players will reportedly be released by their clubs for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar only one week before it begins.

National team coaches normally get their players 30 days prior to the start of a World Cup. The players take part in training and even play friendly matches. However, for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, that may not be the case.

According to a report by l’Equipe, the players will be released one week before the first match. The World Cup begins on November 21 and the players would be released on November 14, one week prior.

  1. Can anyone tell me how does the yellow card accumulation work in Conmebol WCQ? We have 10 players on yellow (Otamendi, Tagliafico, De Paul, Lo Celso, Lautaro, Montiel, Domínguez, Palacios, Pezzella and Quarta). I’m thinking about our next month’s matches against Uruguay and Brazil.

    • yes he is used not to create long range plays for the most part but to mostly bypass the first line of the opposition and find messi/lo celso/de paul whoever is free between the lines. this is crucial to the short passing game they are playing nowadays which we discuss before.
      Anyways this video does not actually do complete justice. The first goal actually happens because of a paredes tackle and interception to rob uruguay possession which changes the game. Between guido and leandro we have good options now and the choice will come down to game plan (barring injury).

  2. Off the topic al Monumental looks different isn’t it? How good it’s the New hybrid pitch of River plate
    The reason I mentioned it because arg players and coaching staff wants to play thier games in there, especially vs Brazil next month due the new installed pitch which makes the ball move fast plus they removed the running track which also good.

  3. My two cents on the debate of Qater hosting the 2022 World Cup:
    As far as I know, middle eastern people are among those who love this game the most. Every year, one or another country from this region participates in the World Cup. They never organized this tournament, where many other countries got the privilege to organize it multiple times. I think this is enough of a justification for Qater to organize Football World Cup. It’s not just money, as my friend, Cox4 has suggested. And, in terms of deaths building stadiums, who doesn’t have skeletons in their backyards? The thing is that the media pick and choose when/where to look for a skeleton and when/where not to.

  4. I want to clarify to my friends on this blog to not believe everything they read.
    There has been a large campaign against Qatar over the last 8 years. Why? Because Germany, Denmark and a few other countries were bidding for the tournament, and when they lost it they realized that not only will Qatar host but they will take most licensing money because they also own BeIn sports, Qatar airways etc.
    The campaign was intensified when Qatar’s neighboring country Saudis Arabia, UAE and Bahrain boycotted them for political reason. They all joined in the campaign.
    I’m not defending Qatar, I am only expressing that we shouldn’t believe everything we see and read. Qatar has had fatalities when building stadiums but everything is exaggerated. When Brazil was building two new stadiums for their last wc, do you know how many died? Do you know how many poor people there are in Brazil that can’t afford to even look at a ticket let alone buy one? How about the world cup in south Africa where England and Holland made all the money? How many people died in their infrastructure preparation?????
    Look, I don’t care about Qatar, I just know that they have a happy population and a very high GDP. I also know that when France and Germany are involved in scrutiny then there is something always wrong with the picture. Germany’s plan was to destroy the image of Qatars involvement, knowing that they are ready to take on as host if it is cancelled “last minute”. How many times have these people hosted already? F em
    This blog isn’t for the ignorant Facebook user that believes anything they hear…. And if it is, please inform me as I will discontinue participation without hesitation…

    • Qatar shouldn t host the world cup for many reasons my friend. not only for political reasons and the people that die unfortunately. it is long story and not place for this type of conversations. But Just because Qatar have money doesn t mean that they have the right to buy the world cup. there is and other things that should have been considered. Not only money.
      if it is like this then we can find a group of billionares to buy the world cup and make it to Antartica. it will make wonderful backround to build stadiums there. it will be unique idea and everybody will love it. Stadiums in ice sides and beside the penguins. magical world cup will be. Does it matter that we will fuck up the nature ? No of course. who cares. the earn of money to be high and the rest is details ha?
      with this extreme example i just want to say that we can t have only the money as priority for give the host of a world cup.

  5. I cannot remember the last time or anytime where we have had the NT meet up this many times in a calendar year. Which can only be a benefit to chemistry and improving tactics and play. Hence we can see the results against Uruguay.
    The last time I’ve enjoyed watching us play like we did the other night was in 2006.
    Cramming in 2 tournaments and cramming in the qualifiers due to the pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for the team. The only positive light out of a bleak and terrible period.

  6. stupid question but i wonder.
    Since Kazakhstan and Israel playing in Europe and Australia in Asia why we can t move to play in Europe or Africa? it will be far better than playing in f…ing Conmebol.
    Obviously for some people in FIFA geography doesn t matter. so ?

    • With all respect my friend Cox,
      Conmebol competition is better than European competition. I understand that Europe has Italy and England and Germany etc…..
      But they have about 40 other countries that have no skill and cannot compete with Venezuela or Bolivia. Luxembourg, Lithuania, isreal, are all trash soccer countries who waste competition dates.
      Africa should be the best continent in soccer by now but they are still recovering from the 1000 years of European rape.
      I like where we are.

      • Personally i don t like where we are my friend for only one reason.
        not about football level but because the mentality on Conmeshit “Brasil and the rest”. it is discusting anymore. and i don t speak only for our national team. i am speaking AND about club football. my team River plate and all the other teams from Argentina (and not only) we suffer very long time from the shitty Conmebol. you know what i mean very well. not necesary i speak more. this is my point. i am proud that i am South american and even more that i am Argentine.

    • Cox, amigo, Kazakhstan has a small section that is geographically in Europe as strange as it may sound. Israel is firmly in the Middle East/West Asia but can you imagine them playing vs Syria, Iran, etc? Hence they joined UEFA. Australia dominated Oceania so much that other countries never had a chance. At least Australia is in the larger Asia-Pacific region.

      However, having said all of that, I think world cup in Qatar was always a strange idea. I never liked it. And especially ridiculous is when there guest countries in Copa America that are completely from a different part of the world.

        Yes Kazakstan has small geo section of Europe, but in the end who drawed the world map and the borders of it as we know it today…?

        But Who took from the Ottoman’s who used owned it at for some point before they had took that away god knows from who as that piece of land in the middle East and gave it to make able establish a country we know as Israel today who do not have anythingto do with the people of Isralitie’s that used to belong to the Ottoman’s at some point as obviously they had also somehow got hold of that piece of land which do not belong to them either until they gave it away or it was taken away from them due to an terms of war,

        doesn’t really matter as Israel is literally killing the Palestinian people and bought and sold at the same time Pegasus 3 from CIA of U.S to the Saudi’s so they can hack anyone’s phone if necessary as they did to Amazon’s Jeff Besos as he turned down multi money investment in the Saudi Soil with many other big investment fella’s as they found out that Saudis had murdered in Istanbul their ex main media Person for the Saudi King who have got rid of allmost all of his family, cousins and maybe even brothers to just to gain maximum power and control as this Saudi journalist who had ran away from Saudi Arabia became a star Washington post journalist as he openly discussed the situation in the Saudi Arabia and how things are done and dealt in there which caused him his life as the ”Saudi Royal family/kingdom” took his life by murderring him at the Saudi embassy in Istanbul while he was trying together documents to get married etc.
        It is all recorded and openly discussed, but Still nothing has been done about it, well quess why as who would like to fight with such amount of money as Saudi’s have or actually the Saudi King has as he got rid of so many of his own family members and others who were billionaires and confesticated all their money and now with Pegasus 3 at his hands thanx to Israel, well it is a quite of an mess indeed !

        So Israel indeed should play in the middle East as they are playing with so many life’s people who are living there or near by or where ever etc..,, but i do understand your point that is impossible as it would start a world war 3 or at least Iran will get demolished by Israel and U,S co. as i do understand it is better for Aussie’s to play with the Asian countries as there clearly no competition at all in Oceania for them in matter of fact New Zealand should play most propably there to as they should maybe make an Pafic sided Asian Group and one which is more central Asian with middle eastern countries including Israel, LOL !

        I do understand Cox4 and his frustration as he is totally right about theese multi billion countries just gaining more money and getting more and more involded in football and fucking it up with FiFA, UEFA, CONMEBOL the rest OF CROOJS WHO ARE JUST AFTER MONEY AND DO NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT A GAME OF SPORTS CALLED FOITBALL

        IT IS NOT FAIR AT ALL THAT THE SA CONTINENT IS GETTING ALL THE SHIT AS IT WOULD ALLMOST LOOK LIKE ANOTHER EUROPEAN RAID TO THAT PART OF THE WORLD AS ALSO SAME SITUATION IN AFRICA OR ACTUALLY EVEN WORST BEEN JUST CONTINUED…

        THIS CONMEBOL AND FIFA FAVOURING BRAZIL AND UEFA FAVOURING ISRAEL IS JUST BULLSHIT AS THEY DESPERATE TO GET ISRAEL IN TO WC WHICH WAS IN THEIR REACH UNTIL THE SCOTTISH MANAGED TO BEAT THEM IN SCOTLAND WHO DO NOT WANT A FUCKING BREXIT AS THE BRITISH HAVE ONCE AGAIN DECIDED FOR THE REST OF EUROPE NOT TO BE IN EU ANYMORE AS NOW AS PREDICTED GOODS IN THEIR FOOD STORE’s ARE SLOWLY GETTING MORE AND MORE EMPTY ALSO PEOPLE OF UK FO NOT HAVE ENOUGH GAS FOR TO HEAT UP THEIR HOUSES AS UK DO HAVE THAT AMOUNTBOF SOURCE OF GAS AND HAVE TO BUY IT MAINLY FROM RUSSIANS AS FOR SOME REASON THE RUSSIAN’s HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO COLKECT THAT AMOUNT GAS AS BEFORE SO AS MANY COUNTRYS IN EUROPE DO USE GAS HEATING AS GERMANY FOR EXAMPLE, WELL SUDDENLY THERE MIGHT BE NOT SO MUCH GAS AVAILABLE ON THE GLOBAL MARKET AS IT USED TO BE ETC…SO GONGRALUTES TO BREXIT AS UK BASED LIVING PEOPLE MIGHT HAVE A BIT OF COLD AT THEIR HOUSES AS THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE ENOUGH GAS TO HEAT THEM UP AS OTHER GOODS MIGHT BE ALSO DIFFICULT TO GET AT SOME POINT AND FOR SURE PRICES WILL GO UP AGAIN AND THOSE WITH MONEY WILL JUST MAKE MORE MONEY TO THEMSELFS AS OTHERS WILL SUFFER IN THE END

  7. if that is true then we should forget friendly games and preparation before world cup.
    that means we have to qualify as fast possible for world cup. that way we can use last 2-3 qualifyers games to make our tests and to prepare for wc.
    that means we should take the 3 points against Peru without second thinking.

  8. This is ridiculous. FIFA knew from day 1 that the World Cup will be in November. They should and can adjust the league and international window to cater for the World Cup. Team cannot have their players 1 week before the biggest sporting event.. this is crazy

  9. This isn’t true. It can’t be. There’s just no way. This is the world cup, not the Europe racist nations league.
    I bet that this is either incorrect or will be changed at some point. 2 weeks is reasonable but still cutting it close, 3 weeks would be fine. But one week? These millionaires gives their prostitutes more time to recover than professional players get for the biggest tournament in the world? I don’t know

  10. If this is going to be the case, then we would be one of the teams which will get least affected by this decision. We have already started to play our core group of players for next world cups. Some changes here and there are required, but hopefully we will get enough chance to experiment in coming qualifier rounds.

  11. Has this whole world cup been planned as bad as it possibly good be? Who would have thought, when you choose a location so un ideal for football you’re going to cause a whole lot of BS. Not to mention the conditions and treatment of the workers making the stadiums. My opinion is — if you have to build stadiums somewhere to host something, you shouldn’t be hosting it there. There are plenty of countries full of stadiums that are actually known for football. Now back to the original topic, are they trying to kill players? Having to go from a full on league season to a world cup plus travelling in one week? Expect injuries
