Caffeine, can 2022 FIFA World Cup football players use it?

The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is in full swing,
So can football players drink coffee, is caffeine a stimulant? and does the Football Association prohibit athletes from drinking coffee or consuming caffeine?
Obviously, football players often drink coffee, and caffeine should be counted as a stimulant banned in the Olympic Games, but the 2022 Qatar World Cup Football Association will not control football players drinking coffee. According to my analysis, the reasons are as follows
Obviously, football players often drink coffee, and caffeine should be counted as a stimulant banned in the Olympic Games, but the 2022 Qatar World Cup Football Association will not control football players drinking coffee. According to my analysis, the reasons are as follows

1.
Football is a skillful multiplayer sport, unlike Olympic track and field events, which examines the instantaneous explosive power of athletes, so the impact of stimulants such as caffeine on football players can be ignored。

2.
Football is a long-term sport. Like the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the entire schedule will last for almost a month, and caffeine can boost energy for a short period of time. Therefore, caffeine intake by football players is almost No effect.

3.
Football is a multiplayer sport, it pays attention to control and cooperation, it needs 11 people to cooperate with each other to achieve good results, and the result will not change because one player takes caffeine, so football does not pay too much attention to football Athletes take caffeine.

4.
As a daily drink, coffee can be seen everywhere. Almost everyone has eaten it. It is not a stimulant specially developed for competitions. Even if an athlete takes caffeinated coffee, there is a high probability that they will not be punished by football. It's just a drink that everyone likes to see and see, nothing more.

Of course, in the end, I also want to advocate that as an athlete, you must abide by sports rules, respect professional ethics, and respect your opponents. You must not intentionally take doping in advance. It is actually harmless to drink a cup of coffee every day.
