OREANDA-NEWS. The Paraguayan Football Federation has lodged a complaint with FIFA against CSKA Moscow. The reason was that the Army Men failed to send newcomer Jesus Medina to the national team, La Nacion reports.

Paraguay have exercised their right to lodge a complaint with FIFA against the Muscovites. Under the regulations, football authorities will now disqualify Medina for one or more official matches for CSKA.

"Jesus Medina has not been let go by his club CSKA, he will not take part in the qualifying matches. The secretary general of the Paraguayan Football Association has already informed FIFA of the situation,"- the Paraguayan national team said.

The Paraguayan national team announced its squad for the qualifying matches against Uruguay and Brazil on 14 January. In addition to Medina, the team is missing four other players for health reasons: Andres Kubas, Celso Ortiz, Roberto Fernandez and Omar Alderete.
CSKA announced the transfer of 24-year-old Medina on January 17. The midfielder has signed a contract with the Army side until the summer of 2025.

The Paraguayan national team will take on the Uruguayans on January 27 as part of their qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar and will play Brazil away on February 1.
