  • War Ukraine – Russia, LIVE: today’s latest news, minute by minute

LRussia’s invasion of Ukraine had a significant impact on the world of sport and, little by little, the different entities were announcing sanctions for both Russia and Belarus.

Undoubtedly, one of the most resonant of the measures FIFA took it by leaving Russia without the possibility of going to the 2022 Qatar World Cup. The team led by Valeri Karpin had to face Poland next Thursday, March 24 in Moscow, for the Repechage of the European Qualifiers, but the highest body in world football decided to eliminate it from the competition.

“We believe that this decision is contrary to the rules and principles of international competition, as well as sportsmanship. It is clearly discriminatory in nature and harms a large number of athletes, coaches, club employees and national teams and, what is most importantly, to millions of Russian and foreign fans, whose interests should be protected by international sports organizations in the first place,” The Federation responded in a statement.
