Venezuela's major soccer team, Vinotinto will play again at home on November 17 against Chile, in what will be the fourth date of the Preliminary Phase of the FIFA Qatar 2022 Soccer World Cup in Caracas, after the Regularizing Committee of the Venezuelan Football Federation (FVF) made the decision this Thursday, October 15, that the match be held in the capital of the Republic.
Laureano González, president of the committee, reported that the match against the Chileans will be on Tuesday, November 17, after playing in Sao Paulo against Brazil.
“Initially, the game would take place in Mérida, but the reasons for his move to Caracas have to do with the logistical issues of television, facilities to quickly make and obtain the results of the PCR tests, in addition to the mobilization of the technical staff and the players, ”González reported.
The highest authority of the FVF also highlighted that the institution thanks the people and the authorities of Mérida, both its protector Jehyson Guzmán and the health services and security forces, for the excellent attention provided at the Hotel Convencion by its staff, for the invaluable collaboration of the Merida government in facilitating and supporting La Vinotinto, as well as receiving Paraguayan visitors.
Starting this week, both the committee and the coaching staff began planning for dates 3 and 4 of the South American tie, the same ones that will close the soccer year for national teams in relation to the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.
