After going through long negotiations, FIFA finally lifted the ban on playing for Brazilian players in English Premier League clubs.
The nine players are Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino from Liverpool, Ederson and Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City), Thiago Silva (Chelsea), Fred (Manchester United), Raphinha (Leeds), serta Richarlison (Everton).
It also made the Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) angry and asked FIFA to give a penalty.
The CBF has sent a written request to FIFA to activate the no-play clause for players who refuse to join the national team.
According to Article 5 of the FIFA Disciplinary Rules, players must join when called up to the national team on official match days or called FIFA Day.
Those who refuse without any reason will be banned from their club competitions for five days.
