    He'd already started light training two days ago, according to Klopp in his pre-Southampton press conference, so he should be okay for Sunday.

    FIFA don't seem to have clarified it for us yet, no surprises there really. Too risky to have an ineligible player in the squad and then have a pts deduction or whatever.

    Surely it will be clear by midweek whether Cameroon are objecting or not, if not then play him against Plymouth and either Swansea/Saints.

    It won't be "clear" until the end of the tournament. Cameroon are just simply going to refuse to clarify the 'retirement' situation, effectively turning it into a ban.

    We should be able to claim compensation if it gets silly, but it still means Matip won't play.

    Utter ****ing nonsense. Why does a national team have any control over whether a player plays for his club team or not?

    Taken from TIA: Article 5 to which FIFA refer states the following: “A player who has been called up by his association for one of its representative teams is, unless otherwise agreed by the relevant association, not entitled to play for the club with which he is registered during the period for which he has been released or should have been released pursuant to the provisions of this annexe, plus an additional period of five days.”
    He's out. And you're out, too. And I don't think I'm in, either. No gang!
