FIFA excluded Russia from international tournaments, while foreign players can leave Russian clubs

It means that the Russian national team lost the right to fight for the ticket to Qatar, where the World Cup 2022 would be held. The final qualification stage will be played without Russia, so Poland now expects the opponent from the pair of the Czech Republic against Sweden for the single ticket for the trio.
