FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022
Brazil's soccer ruling body (CBF) has backed FIFA's message of focusing on the football at the World Cup in Qatar.
The statement from the record five-times champions follows that of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL), who said "disagreements and fights" should "take a back seat" when the tournament kicks off on November 20.
"We wholeheartedly agree that, together with FIFA, the Qatari authorities and other bodies, extra-football issues are being addressed in the certainty that football can be a force for positive change in societies around the world," the CBF said in a statement.
"As FIFA always insists on remembering, this tournament will also be an opportunity for fans... to meet and live together in peace and joy, regardless of their origin, religion or sexual orientation, united by the universal language of football.
"For a football without prejudice."
