World Cup Qualifiers; Covid Chaos in Brazil!

The game in Sao Paulo is abandoned after 5 minutes. Argentina’s English based players are accused of lying when entering the country!

Brazil and Argentina’s World Cup qualifier was abandoned just minutes after kick-off on Sunday as Brazilian health officials objected to the participation of 3 Argentine players they believe broke quarantine rules. Brazilian Covid restrictions dictate that anyone entering the country from the UK must quarantine.

The dramatic intervention came hours after Brazil’s health authorities had said 4 English Premier League (EPL) players for Argentina had to quarantine.

The players with EPL clubs are Emiliano Buendia and Emiliano Martinez of Aston Villa, and Giovani lo Celso and Cristian Romero of Tottenham Hotspur. Martinez, Lo Celso, and Romero all took to the pitch in Sao Paulo.

No date for the rearranged fixture has been set. The Argentina players have left Brazil to prepare for their next World Cup qualifier, which is at home to Bolivia on Friday, the 10th of September.
