Reason The 2022 World Cup Qualifiers Between Brazil And Argentina Deserved Suspension

The Brazil-Argentina rivalry match was highly anticipated as a rematch of last July's copa America final. Argentina won the match 1–0 at Brazil's Maracana stadium, and Lionel Messi won his first international trophy in his carreer. The world cup qualifiers between Brazil and Argentina on Sunday night was suspended in corinthians Arena in são paulo, Brazil, after Brazilian health officials entered the pitch in a row over covid rules.

The officials matched in to the field shortly after kick off, and confronted the Argentina's players who left the field while the two managers alongside with Argentina's captain, Lionel Messi, and Brazil players gathers to discuss the stoppage.

"Due to the decision made by the referee, the match organised by FIFA between the two South American countries for the world cup qualifiers is suspended" CONMEBOL announced on Twitter.

What were the covid protocol that were broken?

Under the Brazilian rules, visitors who come from another country must be quarantine for 14 days, just as it is in the United Kingdom, for 14 days before entering the country, visitors must be quarantine for on arrival. The four players with Premier League names who broke the rules are Emiliano Buendia and Emiliano Martinez of Aston villa, Giovani LA celso and Cristain Romero of Tottenham.

Breaking of rules and regulations laid down by the Association of Football, or breaking rules of a particular country where football matches are to take place, or breaking their covid protocols, by any football player, is an act which is subject to punishment. According to IFAB Rules of the Game on covid protocols, any team who break the covid protocols laid down by the football associations, or rules laid down by any country where football matches are to take place, that team is punishable by suspension, and matches played by that team, and matches to be played by that same team will be canceled.
