A Brazil-Argentina World Cup qualifying match has been suspended after health officials said four Argentinian players had violated COVID-19 quarantine rules.
According to Brazilian health authorities Premier League players Giovani Lo Celso, Emiliano Martinez, Emiliano Buendia and Cristian Romero provided “false information” to immigration officials, failing to disclose they had spent time in the UK prior to their arrival.
Calling off the match just minutes after kick-off triggered chaos between police and players on the pitch.
