A great scandal was generated this Sunday in the match between Brazil and Argentina, of the qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar, which was suspended after personnel from the Brazilian health agency intervened in the game at the Neo Química Arena stadium in Sao Paulo, to deport the Argentine players, who are active in England, and who violated the protocols for entering the country .
The four footballers who were in difficulty with the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) for making a mistake in the biosafety protocols against COVID-19 are Emiliano Martínez and Emiliano Buendía from Aston Villa, as well as Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso from Tottenham.
Five minutes into the game, health agents entered the field and chaos ensued, so the game was suspended. 30 minutes later, the Argentine Football Federation reported, on its Twitter account, that the game had been suspended; then Conmebol itself also reported the suspension of the game.
A regulation in force in Brazil to prevent the spread of COVID-19 provides that people who come from Great Britain, South Africa and India or who have been in those countries in the last 14 days, must comply with preventive isolation when entering Brazil.
The four players who play in the Premier League lied on the entry form for Brazil, by not informing that they were in the United Kingdom at some point in the fourteen days prior to their arrival for this pre-world cup match, according to the entity.
This, after Brazilian health authorities interrupted the meeting. https://t.co/xmrAcvbVfu
