Brazil’s FA have written to Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Leeds and Everton to order their players be released. Unless an unlikely peace deal is brokered, Brazil are set to ask FIFA to step in and insist.

Isn’t coronavirus the reason why EPL is holding the players? If so then this is a hard problem that’ll need a lot of bureaucracy to fix. Most countries have put measures in place to avoid the “unnecessary” movement of people across borders.

But I think the EPL is doing this to keep their players because even after the international break they’ll have to go through a 2-week quarantine before they rejoin the team, meaning missing about 2 games. And most of these players are key in their various teams,like Salah and Mane for Liverpool,Raphinha for Brazil and the likes. I don’t know what sanctions other countries are putting in place,but Brazil have made their stance known.
