According to the Qatari government, female soccer players fled Afghanistan by plane to Doha on Thursday.
“Approximately 100 soccer players and their families, including female players, are participating,” tweeted Lolwah Al Khater, Qatar’s assistant foreign minister.
Qatar worked with FIFA to coordinate the evacuation of players, including some of the national teams who were taken to the compound along with other evacuees to be tested for coronavirus. It is unknown how long they will stay in Qatar.
