The FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualifier between Brazil and Argentina at the Corinthians Arena was abruptly stopped in one of the most frightening events in recent football history as Brazilian police entered the field. Before kick-off, there were reports that four Argentine Premier League players – Christian Romero, Emiliano Martinez, Gio Lo Celso, and Emiliano Buendia – would not be permitted to participate because they lied about being in England for the previous ten days.
ANVISA, Brazil’s national health monitoring organization, travelled to Argentina’s squad hotel to ban the four Premier League stars from participating in the game due to COVID-19 protocols. According to accounts, the players had already arrived at the stadium, prompting police to march onto the field to halt the game and take appropriate action.
Argentina’s players have been escorted back to their locker rooms, while Brazil’s players remain on the field awaiting official news.
