It is the news agency AP that has received information about a meeting during the day of the International Football Federation Fifa where the issue of allowing U17 national teams from Russia to play international matches is to be raised and where they are expected to follow the European football federation Uefa's decision.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has called a digital meeting, according to the AP.

In order for Russian teams to reach the World Cup for U17 national teams, they must qualify through the UEFA system.

It was just over a week ago that Uefa decided to welcome the U17 national team, whose European Championship qualifiers start in October. The decision goes against many of Uefa's national associations, including the Swedish one.

In Sweden, the decision has also created a domestic conflict because the former football association chairman Karl-Erik Nilsson – who sits on Uefa's executive committee – voted for the proposal, and thus against the decisions of both the Swedish Football Association and the Swedish Sports Confederation, where he is now chairman.

"Hope you can sort it out"

Sweden's head coach for the men's national team, Janne Andersson, thinks the situation is unfortunate.

"I hope it can be sorted out in the best possible way. I have had some contact with Karl-Erik, whom I know well, and supported him as a person. But he and others will have to sort out the matter, says Andersson in connection with presenting the squad for the European Championship qualifier against Belgium.

"I agree with the decision taken by the Football Association that we will not compete against Russian athletes, whether they are juniors or seniors.

Uefa's decision also goes against the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which does not want to allow Russian and Belarusian teams into international competitions.

However, the IOC has opened up for individual athletes from these countries to compete in the Paris Olympics next year.
