Brazil does not summon Lodi for not being vaccinated | sports

The Brazilian coach, Tite, has not summoned Renan Lodi, Atlético’s left back, for the next two qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup due to not having the vaccination schedule complete. Brazil must pay a visit to Ecuador on January 27 and it is an essential requirement to enter that country to be vaccinated. “He has lost the possibility of competing because he is not vaccinated,” Tite said. The technician of the canarinha He appealed to social responsibility as an argument not to mention the rojiblanco left back: “I, in particular, understand that vaccination is a social responsibility. This is mine and with the person next to me. I bring that to myself and to my family, to the people for whom I have responsibility. My grandchildren … I wish I had my parents, I don’t have them, but I wish I had the opportunity to protect them ”. The coordinator of the selection canarinha, Juninho Paulista, also assured that “Renan Lodi cannot enter Ecuador and in Brazil there are also restrictions. You received your first dose of vaccine now, on (January) 10. Then, within the sanitary regulations of the country, I could not be in the delegation ”. Neither Atlético nor the player have denied the information offered by the technical managers of the Brazilian team.

With the controversy that the Djokovic case has aroused, the revelations of Tite and Juninho have questioned whether the delegations of the four teams participating in the Spanish Super Cup, which is being played in Saudi Arabia these days, have been required to same requirements as the rest of non-resident foreigners who arrive in the Asian country. According to Reuters, three sources close to the matter have admitted that exceptions were made after negotiating the Spanish Football Federation, organizer of the tournament, with local authorities. “All our players and components of the expedition meet the health and sports requirements that have been requested to enter the country and play the competition, as they do in the rest of the competitions in which we participate”, they limited themselves to explaining at Atlético. From the federation they assured that all the players who have entered Saudi Arabia meet the requirements demanded by the local health authorities. In the federation they added that they worked with all the authorities so that the entire squads could travel. This newspaper has consulted both the rojiblanco club and the federation about the requirements they had to meet to enter Saudi Arabia without obtaining a response.

On the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Spain it is detailed, dated December 30, 2021, that foreigners not residing in Saudi Arabia need to have the complete vaccination schedule and present a PCR-type test carried out in the 72 hours before the trip. Travelers who are not vaccinated must be quarantined for 14 days upon arrival in the country. On the website ‘visitsaudi.com’ it is also specified that with a single dose of the vaccine against covid-19, as in the case of Renan Lodi, “travelers who do not possess Saudi citizenship or residence must pass a period of five days of institutional quarantine in a designated hotel. The quarantine will be lifted if the result of the PCR-type test is negative on the fifth day after arrival in the country ”.
