Why is Russia not playing in the FIFA World Cup 2022?

Russia had qualified for the World Cup playoffs after finishing second in Group H in the UEFA qualifiers.

It was all set to play Poland in the playoff on March 24, when Russian forces began their attack on Russia on February 24.

Russia hosted the last edition of FIFA World Cup, but this year they will not make an appearance in Qatar. They were banned by FIFA in February this year because of its invasion of Ukraine.

And on February 28, FIFA and UEFA, under recommendations from IOC, suspended Russia and Russian clubs from participating in their competitions including the FIFA World Cup 2022.

However, Russia don’t stop there, they appealed the decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but it was turned down on March 18. As a result, Poland got a walkover and then beat Sweden to secure its place in Qatar 2022.
