The Qatar 2022 World Cup is approaching and in Europe, some teams are still missing to qualify. Among these teams is Ukraine, since they were going to face Scotland in a wild card game. However, due to the war that Russia started, the Ukrainian team has not been able to play.
Ukraine asked FIFA to delay the match with Scotland until June, so we still don't know if it will be able to reach the World Cup this year.
For its part, Russia was directly eliminated from all competitions organized by FIFA. Although the country appealed this decision before the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the punishment is still active. This is an example of how Russian athletes will not be able to participate in international competitions until the war in Ukraine is stopped.
