Will be interesting to see if that gets applied to Nigeria, who in the next international break play Algeria away, followed by a friendly against Argentina in Russia. Not sure I've heard this rule before, there must have been plenty of cases similar to Nigeria's upcoming one in the past.Jason wrote:That silly FIFA rule that a NT cannot play in two different continents in the same FIFA calendar window, despite for CV being closer and cheaper to travel to Portugal than e.g MozambiqueKaizeler wrote: 10.10.2017 Mozambique 1-0 Cape Verde (in Massamá, Portugal)

Not on FIFA's list but I couldn't immediately find a reason not to consider it an A match. Cape Verde's team at least was very similar to the one that hosted Senegal in the WC qualifier three days earlier.

The rule also doesn't consider the countries in which the players are based. Given that the point of this rule was ostensibly to reduce demands on player travelling, it is another example of a bad committee job made by clueless clowns. A rule which has little impact on its intended target, and which is full of unanticipated (yet obvious) negative consequences.
