Brazil-Argentina Off Amid Reports England-Based Players Broke Quarantine Rules

The World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina in Sao Paulo was called off amid extraordinary scenes as officials stormed onto the pitch over an alleged coronavirus breach by the visitors’ England-based players.

The Argentina team responded to the entrance of officials reportedly from Brazil’s health authority and the police by walking off the pitch and down the tunnel.

According to reports, Brazilian authorities wanted to detain the four Premier League players in the Argentina squad for not quarantining upon their arrival in the country.

The quartets are Tottenham’s Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso and Aston Villa’s Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia.

The Spurs pair and Martinez started Sunday night’s match, which was halted shortly after kick-off. Buendia was not in the squad.

South American Football Confederation CONMEBOL announced on Twitter that the match had been suspended and the referee and match delegate would now provide a report for FIFA’s disciplinary committee, which would decide what action to take.
