FIFA allows 26 players on World Cup rosters

The world football body continues to adjust the parameters for Qatar 2022

FIFA approved raising the squad lists for the Qatar World Cup to 26 players.

The addition of three players to the World Cup squads emulates the measure that UEFA introduced for the European Championship to be played in 2021.

For its part, CONMEBOL approved calls for 28 players for the Copa América last year, and the same happened with the African Cup of Nations in January.

Also, the teams will be able to make five substitutions during the 90 regulation minutes instead of the traditional three.

The change in roster size means an additional 96 players will attend the World Cup from November 31 to December 18.

 The tournament will have 28 days of competition compared to 32 four years ago in Russia.
