Even without quarantining, that's a ridiculous number of matches - and probably flying at least a week or so before etc.

Blimey, thanks for this analysis, so there is basically only August, December, April and May that aren't screwed by this. Really brings home the folly of only signing 1 new CB.

The future’s bright; the future’s Lilywhite.
He's not Argentinian, so not subject to the same quarantine rules?

Colombia play all their matches in red list countries too so he will be subject to the same rules. They play away to Bolivia and Paraguay then home to Chile.
I haven't actually seen any confirmation that he's joined up with the Colombian squad though.

There were some leniencies for elite sportsfolk weren't there?

Not from red list countries to my knowledge. From amber destinations the quarantine could be skipped or finished early if the traveller is fully vaccinated and/or takes regular tests.
 
There will have to be sort of testing exemption sorted for this eventually.
Why? Public health > premier league > lining FIFA's pockets. The idea that footballers should get to slip the rules to enable one of the most corrupt organizations in the world running qualifiers for the most corrupt sporting event in the world in one of the most loathsome countries in the world is absurd.

No disagreement on the moral horror and practical absurdity of the Qatar World Cup, but I feel like this bleeds into a denigration of the international game that I hear a lot from big English club fans and I very much disagree with.

Club and International football are both great and need to find a way to coexist. Maybe that means less international football, but WCQ are essential.

During a global pandemic, its absurd. There's just no way to practically allow them to coexist without greatly distorting both competitions. Nations in red zones whose players don't report because its a global health crisis and doing so jeopardizes their employers are at a competitive disadvantage. Clubs who employ players who do report to red zones because they feel an obligation to do so are at a competitive disadvantage.

The responsible thing for any real governing body in this situation would have been to work with the leagues and FAs to remove the international breaks from the season, accelerate league schedules to conclude a little sooner, give the players a rest, conduct quick fire WC qualifiers in the summer, gove the players a rest, have the first part of next season, then break for the WC.

For once the universe delivered a break - the insanely stupid Qatar winter WC gave FIFA maximum flexibility to adapt the tournament around a global pandemic. And, in their finest fashion, they managed to completely fuck that opportunity up by just pretending the global pandemic didn't exist.

Seriously. Fuck FIFA. If that means the end of international football, so be it. It ain't worth it.
 
They're likely all double vaccinated and could be tested at their own expense....and will be mixing with other footballers in the same situation.

The situation is out of their hands so why should they be punished? It's not a fucking holiday, regardless of everyone else.

A large % of players have refused to get vaxd so that's far from a foregone conclusion.
