Gonzalo Higuain was training with Miami like a week after he arrived in the US, so I don't know what their problem is with other teams ignoring it.

I would assume he could train in Miami was because Florida doesn't have any mandatory quarantine period. Each team is beholden to the regulations of their local government so there is no league standard.

you can't recruit international caliber players if they know you will block them from playing in qualifiers.  It sucks but is very short sighted by MLS. 

Pretty sure some Euro players missed UEFA Nations League games recently (Croatian or Slovakian league iirc). Of all the reasons that good players won't come to MLS, this one-off weird occurrence would be quite low on the list.

who knows if Kaku wants to travel at this time but does not want to say no the Paraguay call up.  Easier to say I would love to come but its my club.

Or maybe he does.......

They will end up moving back WC to 2023, so that WCQ can take place in 2022 when covid19 is hopefully over. (my opinion)

Is a vaccine getting closer?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Cbs news gave an update on the vaccine. Of a vaccine gets approved, there is going to be logistical challenges. The vaccine being developed by pfizer req the vaccine to be stored at -95 degrees and the vaccine being developed by moderna requires the vaccine to be stored at -5 degrees.

A new stimulus will be needed to help build out the infrastructure to distribute the vaccine.

Initially, perhaps. Ever is a long time.

I could see it being a requirement to have all workers vaccinated before we got back to normal. Ppl could object but then they might not have a job.
