Qatar Could Ban Unvaccinated Players From Next Year's Football World Cup

Qatar are reportedly pushing for mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations for all players who take part in the 2022 World Cup. 

The Gulf nation has already revealed that anyone attending the tournament next November will have to be doubled jabbed and has taken up the same position with players, according to The Athletic.

However, it is known that professional players' views on taking the vaccine are mixed and there are some concerns Qatar's stance could rob the tournament of its stars - something all parties want to avoid.

Qatar, who have already administered more than 4.6 million vaccines so far, roughly 82 per cent of their population, are in discussions with FIFA and medical authorities in efforts to reach an amicable solution.
