Qatar 2022: lists extended to 26 players?

Although in a pandemic, we are also in a World Cup year. At the end of the year, the biggest nations will compete in Qatar with the aim of winning the world title. To deal with the risks linked to Covid-19, FIFA plans to expand the lists from 23 players to 26, as UEFA was able to do for Euro 2020 and CONMEBOL for the Copa America the same summer.

The final decision has not yet been announced but it should fall at the end of March, announces RMC Sport. The lists may well be expanded, it may be that the match sheets remain limited to 23 players as was the case during the Euro. Which did not please Didier Deschamps in his human management perspective since he had to send three players to the stands for each meeting.
