The Brazilian health authorities have stopped the match between the country’s team and Argentina to deport four Argentine players. After five minutes of the game, the authorities went down to the pitch in search of Emiliano Martínez, Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Emiliano Buendía.
Footballers regularly play in England and according to the National Health Surveillance Agency, they had not reported this when entering Brazil, which requires a quarantine after coming from the European country.
The players, according to sources, have falsified their papers and the Brazilian authorities wanted them not only not to play the game but also for them to be expelled from the country. Finally, with the mediation of the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol) before the Brazilian Confederation and the Brazilian Government, the order was not carried out and the players were able to go to the stadium, although the match was suspended shortly after starting.
