Players
from
Brazil,
Mexico,
Chile
and
Paraguay
are
cleared
to
play
as
their
national
federations
agreed
late
Friday
to
waive
a
measure
that
would
have
compelled
the
players
to
sit
out
after
their
clubs
refused
to
release
them
for
international
duty.

Premier
League
teams
last
month
decided
to
prevent
players
from
nations
on
the
United
Kingdom’s
COVID-19
“red
list”
to
participate
in
Qatar
2022
qualifiers,
citing
the
UK’s
requirement
that
people
who
have
travelled
to
those
countries
quarantine
for
10
days
upon
their
return.

There
had
been
some
indications
earlier
Friday
that
the

might
be
available,
but
official
word
did
not
come
down
until
shortly
before
midnight
London
time.

Brazilians
now
available
to
their
clubs
Saturday
include
Ederson
and
Gabriel
Jesus
of
Manchester
City,

Thiago
Silva
and

and

Earlier
Friday,
Jurgen
Klopp
said
at
a
news
conference
that
he
hoped
a
solution
could
be
reached
for
the
benefit
of
all
parties
involved.

“It
is
a
really
difficult
situation
and
really
tricky
for
all
the
clubs,
and
the
players
especially,”
Klopp
said.
“We
should
not
forget
at
this
moment
that
the
players
wanted
to
play
these
games,
the
clubs
wanted
to
let
the
players
go
but
it
was
not
possible.”
