The main reason for the cancellation of the round was the European clubs' reluctance to release South American players to their national team commitments. The coronavirus pandemic has raised some fears, and clubs have decided not to release their players, given the problems that would be caused, such as mandatory quarantine, in addition, of course, the damage to an infected athlete.
England is one of the countries that placed barriers, and one of the rules would be for players to go through 10 days of quarantine after returning from South America. Other countries also joined, adding some rules for the return. Thus, FIFA decided to release the countries of the continent from giving in the selectable ones.
The South America Playoff is played all-in-all, round and round. After the completion of all rounds, the top four will have a direct slot for the 2022 World Cup. The fifth place will still have to go through another round, against a selection of a continent to be defined. Four games have already been played, and Brazil is the current leader of the competition, with 12 points and 100% success rate.
