FIFA cancels World Cups in 2021

FIFA has cancelled the U-17 and U-20 World Cups that were to hold in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The U-17 World Cup was scheduled to take place in Peru and the U-20 World Cup in Indonesia.

FIFA, in a statement has confirmed both countries will now host the respective competitions in 2023.

“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges for the hosting of international sporting events and to have a restrictive effect on international travel.

“FIFA has therefore regularly consulted the relevant stakeholders, including the host member associations as well as the confederations involved in both tournaments originally scheduled to take place in 2021.

“In doing so, it became clear that the global situation has failed to normalize to a sufficient level to address the challenges associated with hosting both tournaments, including the feasibility of the relevant qualification pathways,” the statement read.

EPL: Oscar opens up on return to Chelsea, ending his career at Stamford Bridge

Oscar

Former Chelsea midfielder, Oscar, has revealed his plans to return to Stamford Bridge to ‘finish’ off his career.

The Brazilian left Chelsea in 2017 to join Chinese side, Shanghai SIPG, in a £60m deal that has seen him earn £400,000-a-week salary for the last four years.

However, the 29-year-old is keen to return to the West London club that helped him win two English Premier League titles, the League Cup and the UEFA Europa League.

“I think about finishing at Chelsea because I had good times before at Chelsea,” Oscar told talkSPORT.

“Chelsea helped me a lot to improve and to do what I always dreamed [of], which was to play in the Champions League, and they helped me to play in the World Cup and to win the Premier League.

“I’ve a lot of friends at Chelsea. If I’ve a chance to finish my career at Chelsea, it is a dream for me. Of course, Chelsea does not like to buy too many older players, which is normal because it is a top team from Europe, but I’ll try my best to be fit to finish there.”

Oscar netted 38 goals in 203 appearances for Chelsea after arriving from Brazilian side Internacional in 2012 in a deal worth around £20m.
