2022 World Cup qualifiers and Copa America to go ahead

Published on June 4, 2021 by

Qualifying games for the Qatar 2022 World Cup are being played across South America, despite rising COVID-19 cases there.

The matches come just days before the Copa America tournament kicks off in Brazil.

It was a last-minute choice of venue after the original co-hosting countries – Argentina and Colombia – were deemed unsafe.
