The Qatar Football Association has decided to apologise for not participating in the 2021 Copa America, which will be held at the beginning of next June, and whose competitions are hosted by Colombia and Argentina. 
The decision came after the AFC decision to postpone the joint qualifying round for the 2022 World Cup and the 2023 AFC Asian Cup to be held in June 2021, which contradicts the Qatari team’s matches in the Copa America. The draw had placed the Qatar side in the second group, which includes all of Colombia, the host, in addition to the teams of Brazil, Peru, Venezuela and finally Ecuador.
