There is a need to be able to get settled in the domestic tournaments, and there may be need for more dates to play on in the autumn, when the next season comes later in time than expected.
Fifa has already postponed and cancelled matches up to June, but also the scheduled matches in september, October and november can be dropped, says Fifa.
– Personally, I think that it might be a bit of a challenge. Not only because of the health situation around the world and the various degrees of readiness, but also because of the complications of having to travel internationally, just as soon as we can play again.
– I think that the domestic football tournaments in the countries has highest priority, said Montagliani.
the Canadian do not consider it likely that can be played international football after the summer vacation in several places in the world – including Europe – as things are developing right now.
Thus Denmark’s scheduled matches in the Nations League in autumn, as well as several countries ‘ matches in WORLD cup qualifying, up against the finals in Qatar in 2022 and the danger.
