“因地区局势有变”,美国足协取消了原计划于本月在卡塔尔进行的男足国家队集训。

1月3日,美国派出无人机在巴格达机场暗杀了伊朗将军苏莱曼尼,外界担心有关方面可能会实施针对美国公民的报复行动。

上述事件发生后,卡塔尔暂未受到任何影响,但美国足协还是把安全作为首要考虑因素。据雅虎体育报道,数名美国足协工作人员此前已抵达卡塔尔,目前正计划乘坐航班回国。

此次集训原计划于1月5日至25日举行,地点为多哈的阿斯拜尔训练中心,共有25名男足国脚参训。之后,美国男足将于2月1日在加州卡尔森和哥斯达黎加踢热身赛。美国足协也有意借此行让国家队提前熟悉2022世界杯举办国卡塔尔。

美国足协在声明中称:“因地区局势有变,美国足协决定国家队暂时先不前往卡塔尔。我们会和卡塔尔足协沟通,在不久之后找机会让国家队去体验卡塔尔的世界级设施和服务。”

美国足协还宣布,男足国家队将于本月6日起在佛罗里达州布雷登顿的IMG训练中心集训。
