South American players cleared to play this weekend

England-based players have been cleared to play for their clubs this weekend.

This comes after complaints about their failure to report for international duty were dropped.

Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Paraguay had invoked a Fifa rule.

It would have meant players not released for the recent South American World Cup qualifiers were suspended from playing for five days.

But the countries have withdrawn their complaints, which would have stopped 12 players appearing this weekend.

All countries involved waived the bans after talks with football’s world governing body Fifa.

Fifa said the decision was a sign of good faith, goodwill and co-operation.

It was taken based on positive signals and constructive dialogue.

Fifa has received from the UK government towards the international match window in October.

The world governing body added that, together with the Football Association and Premier League.

It had been liaising with the UK government to avoid a repeat scenario.

This will be so in the next international window comes round in October.
