Brazil out of next World Cup? The threat is serious, and brandished by Fifa itself. In a letter unveiled by the American agency Associated Press and received by the Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) on Sunday, the parent body of international soccer literally puts the Auriverde football authorities on notice, referring to the possible exclusion of Brazilian teams and clubs from forthcoming international events.

At issue is the decision handed down by the Rio court on December 7 to remove Ednaldo Rodrigues from his position as President of the CBF pmerica and World Cup

Kenny Jean-Marie, head of Fifa’s member associations, and Monserrat Jimenez Garcia, deputy general secretary of Conmebol (the South American Football Confederation) have sent an ultimatum to the CBF, specifying that a commission will be appointed on January 8 to rule on the matter. Depending on the findings, the Sele├žao could be banned from taking part in the Copa America 2024, to be held in the USA this summer (June 20 – July 16). They could also be excluded from the qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup, which will be played in Mexico, Canada and the USA.
