TE24 Sports Desk:
FIFA will allow countries to select 26 players for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, expanding the size of the final squad for the competition from November 21 to December 18 by three.
“The number of players has been expanded to something like the 23 and 26 limits to be remembered for the final rounddown,” FIFA said in a statement.
The governing body of world football says the choice to increase the crew was made “due to the need for additional adaptation due to the attractive times” of the current year’s opposition, which will interfere with the European club season.
FIFA has similarly considered “a more detailed setting of the inconvenient effects of the Covid-19 epidemic on crews before and during the competition”.
UEFA adopted comparative changes for Euro 2020 last year, meeting a requirement from consultants who feared they could lose players due to Covid.
Since the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea, public groups have named a team of 23 players for the World Cup and the European Championships.
Earlier, 22 key players per crew were allowed in the global competition.
Last week, football governing body IFAB endorsed the highly sustainable use of five options for all high-level matches, saying groups could now name 15 options instead of 12.
FIFA said on Thursday that some 26 people (15 alternates and 11 group authorities – one of these authorities must be a group specialist) would be allowed to sit in the group seats during the World Cup.
