After the role played in São Paulo, the FIFA Disciplinary Court will have to decide how the match between Argentina and Brazil is defined. Barely four minutes were played before the local health authorities interrupted it. According to what the president of AFA, Claudio Tapia, said, the Argentine team had the endorsement of Conmebol to withdraw from the playing field due to the irruption of an "external factor".

In addition, the South American soccer entity had authorized Emiliano Martínez, Cristian Romero, Giovani Lo Celso and Emiliano Buendía. For this reason, they were included despite the deportation request from the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa). As Argentina acted in line with what it spoke to Conmebol, from AFA they expect a favorable ruling.

"The referee and the match commissioner will submit a report to the FIFA Disciplinary Committee," they said from the Confederation. From AFA they believe that the National Team will receive the points or in any case will have to play again, without penalties. If Brazil is considered lost, it could be punished more severely.

Brazilian health authorities insist that the Albiceleste campus was notified of the deportation order and that they lied in the affidavit. For that reason, they believe that the punishment should be for Argentina. In AFA they assured that this information is not true and that no falsehood was incurred.
