Conmebol asks FIFA for triple qualifying dates to Qatar, September and October, Colombia matches | National teams

The holding of the Copa América through thick and thin in Brazil left a calendar problem in the background that Conmebol has not been able to solve: a double date of Qualifying for Qatar 2022 is pending.

That was one of the topics of the meeting of the Council of the entity, in which the formal request to FIFA for a triple elimination date was decided, in September and October, to fulfill the pending duels.

It is an exit that South American managers see viable, since the same trips would be used, but with three or four more days of concentration for internationals. It remains to be seen whether in Europe the clubs welcome the initiative, which in principle should not be so complex due to the fact that the seasons there are starting.

The double date that is pending is that of last March, which could not be met after the refusal of the Premier League clubs -which imitated other tournaments-, to give up the players to travel to South America and then have to do mandatory quarantines upon return.

If FIFA authorizes the celebration of the triple date, the duels of Colombia would be like this:

September 2: Bolivia vs Colombia
September 6: Paraguay vs Colombia
September 10: Colombia vs Chile
October 7: Uruguay vs Colombia
October 11: Colombia vs Brazil
October 15: Colombia vs Ecuador

We must wait for the authorization of FIFA so that these dates are official.
