FIFA on Thursday, approved 26-player squads for this year’s World Cup in Qatar.

Also, team managers will be able to use up to five substitutes in a game.

In the past, countries were only allowed to name 23 players in their squads.

But that number has been increased due to concerns over player welfare since the COVID-19 pandemic.
