Spanish league goes to CAS over World Cup qualifiers


AP Sports Writer

MADRID (AP) — The Spanish league has filed an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport to defend its clubs after they blocked players from taking part in World Cup qualifiers in South America. The league says it will also file a lawsuit against FIFA in Swiss courts “for infraction of competition rules.” The league says FIFA is infringing its “own statutes and regulations” by forcing teams to release players for World Cup qualifiers for more than 10 days. Brazil has called up nine more players to its squad as a precaution. It is preparing a 45-man squad in case it can’t count on players from European clubs.
