Brazil, Uruguay ask Brazilian government to waive quarantine rules for Premier League players


This month, there was a fiasco during the Brazil-Argentina where four players on La Albiceleste had to leave the country as they didn’t comply with the COVID-19 health protocols in place.

Brazil has the United Kingdom as a red list. Anyone entering the country from the UK is subjected to a quarantine period. As a result, the fixture was suspended, and one national team wants to avoid this fiasco in next month’s FIFA World Cup Qualifying fixtures.

UOL Esporte reports that the Uruguayan Football Association has put in a request to the Brazilian Football Confederation for the government to grant an exception for Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani.

Uruguay will be traveling to Brazil in the next few weeks to play against Brazil on October 14th. They want to avoid another similar situation to that which occurred with Argentina.

Brazil has requested that Brazil allow exceptions to players like Alisson, Ederson and Thiago Silva. Fabinho, Raphinha Gabriel Jesus, Roberto Firmino Richarlison and Fred to be allowed to join their national team.

Another obstacle is that the Premier League has not withheld its players, as they did last month. This caused Tite, Brazil’s national soccer team manager, to withdraw his call ups of players from this region.
