The next tour with the Selection is lost
A strong October is coming for the Argentine National Team. FIFA ratified today the triple date of the Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup after the versions that indicated that only two days could be played to reduce the time that the clubs have to give the players to the selected ones.
Argentina will face three matches in the next “FIFA window” corresponding to dates 11, 5 and 12 of the Qualifiers. Conmebol had made the request to be able to advance in the competition after the long stop due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“FIFA confirmed the request made by Conmebol and will also add 2 more days to these days,” says the official statement from the South American body, which also adds that the stadiums and match schedules will be confirmed in the coming days.
The triple date will be played between Thursday 7 and Thursday 14 October. The Argentine National Team will visit Paraguay in Asunción and then receive Uruguay and Peru. The Monumental Stadium and the Mother of Cities of Santiago del Estero are the ones with the most possibilities.
The Qualifiers have Brazil as the undefeated leader with an ideal score. In addition, Argentina is second and six points and did not lose any games. Uruguay and Ecuador occupy the other two direct qualifying positions while Colombia would be agreeing to a playoff. There are still nine dates to be played in October, November, February and March.
