It was surprising that 5 minutes into the match between Brazil and Argentina, personnel from the Brazilian health authorities entered the field of play to interrupt it. The decision was blunt: they did not allow the game to continue with Emiliano Esque Martínez, Cristian "el Cuti" Romero, Giovani Lo Celso and Emiliano Buendía because they came from England and according to the laws of Brazil, they should quarantine for 14 days.

Conmebol had allowed the four to be part of the National Team in the match that will be played this Sunday, from 16:00 against Brazil, for the Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. And although the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) assured who violated the rules by falsifying the sworn statement in Migrations by omitting that in the last 14 days they were in England, the AFA authorized the meeting that 5 minutes after it began, it was interrupted.

The National Team with Leo Messi at the head was outraged by the attitude of the local health authorities and decided to leave the field by retiring to the changing rooms. A few minutes later Messi appeared wearing a photographer's bib instead of the National Team shirt.

Immediately the comments on Twitter about this look of La Pulga shot up. With the intention of expressing his disagreement with the decision of the Brazilian health authorities, Messi decided to go out onto the field without the National Team shirt. A way to protest, to show your disagreement and to express your decision not to play.
