World Cup exclusion: Russia announces objection
The Russian Football Association wants to draw against the exclusion of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and all international competitions in front of the International international competitions Court CAS. The objection announced the association on Thursday.
Russia’s national team should have taken on the World Cup playoffs against Poland on 24 March. On Monday, the country was excluded from all competitions by the World Association of FIFA and the European Football Union UEFA in response to the invasion of Ukraine.
The Russian association will now demand the resumption of all men and women’s national teams in all competitions, and also apply to CAS an “accelerated procedure” in this matter. Opponents Poland had already announced to take a mistake against Russia in the playoffs.
From the point of view of the association lying for the decision of FIFA and UEFA “no legal basis”. The decision was hit “under the pressure” of the opposing associations, and in addition, one did not want to explain his own position.
Already on Monday, the association had criticized the decision as a “discriminatory”. The Football World Cup will take place from November 21 to 18 December in Qatar.
