What was the content of the role of the ANVISA authority that suspended the match

The complete letter that anticipated the suspension of Argentina-Brazil, and was launched in the middle of the game.


The match between Argentina and Brazil for the Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup was interrupted a few minutes into the game, after the National Health Surveillance Agency of Brazil (Anvisa) entered the field to take Emiliano Martínez, Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Emiliano Buendía, whom he had denounced earlier for apparently violating immigration regulations related to the coronavirus pandemic.

This Sunday, through a statement, the Brazilian health agency had assured that the four Argentine footballers entered the country "in violation of health regulations" by "allegedly declaring, in an official form of the Brazilian health authority, false information."

"It was confirmed, after consulting the passports of the four players involved, that the athletes did not comply with the norm for the entry of travelers on Brazilian soil, provided for in Interministerial Ordinance No. 655 of 2021, which establishes that foreign travelers who have passed, in the last 14 days, by the United Kingdom, South Africa, Northern Ireland and India, they are prevented from entering Brazil, "Anvisa said in the brief.

The truth is that there are no certainties of what the paper actually said, but as it transpired, it was an arrest warrant for the four Argentine footballers, who, in theory, should not only not be present in the stadium, but also They should not have even entered Brazilian territory.
