FIFA has once again ruled on the suspension of the match between Brazil and Argentina for violation of the protocol against the pandemic in the framework of date 6 of the CONMEBOL Qatar 2022 Qualifiers. This Tuesday, the highest world football entity has confirmed the opening of disciplinary proceedings against both South American teams.
As the AFA announced on Monday, the body chaired by Gianni Infantino wants to gather as much information as possible before making a decision with the Disciplinary Commission.
"After analyzing the official match reports related to the FIFA World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina, FIFA confirms the opening of disciplinary proceedings against the two member associations," the agency published on its official website.
“Both teams have been asked to provide more information on the events that led to the suspension of the match, so that the FIFA Disciplinary Committee can collect them and analyze them thoroughly. More information will be provided shortly”, the statement added.
The South American qualifying game was suspended as soon as it began due to a violation of the anticovid protocol by four Argentine players. A group of officials from the Brazilian health agency (Anvisa) entered the field to enforce a deportation order against Emiliano Martínez, Cristian Romero, Giovani Lo Celso and Emiliano Buendía.
