Other players in other leagues may not have to quarantine for 10 days, and other leagues aren't entering playoffs. Peru needs to do what's best for them, but they should also be congizant of what situation they are asking the player to put himself in. Asking Callens to be forced to miss a playoff game for his club team just to sit on the bench seems to be an avoidable situation. They know what MLS players are up to right now. The USMNT avoided taking MLS players for this window. Peru could have avoided this situation.I don't get this. The Peru National Team should look to call up the most talented players they have, right? Sure, he may not play, but what if Peru were to have suffered injuries to 1-2 defenders or one of them got a red card or something? Now they would have to use another Peruvian player they bring instead of Callens (who also "wouldn't be used") that is of lesser quality (in their eyes)?
