The World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina has turned into a bizarre farce. The match at the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo was interrupted after a few minutes by officials from the Brazilian health authorities, who wanted to remove some Argentine players from the field. The match was eventually stopped.
Before the match, there was a riot surrounding four Argentine internationals who play for English clubs. As a result, Brazilian health authorities have ordered the unnamed foursome to immediately go into isolation. Emiliano Buendia, Emiliano Martinez (both Aston Villa), Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero (both Tottenham Hotspur).
According to Brazilian corona rules, passengers who have been in Britain in the past fourteen days must first stay in quarantine for two weeks upon arrival in Brazil. According to the Brazilian authorities, the four Argentinians have incorrectly filled in their travel documents. As a result, the Brazilian government ordered the quartet to go into isolation and to leave the country as soon as possible, without participating in any further activities.
