After four Argentine players were accused of lying, the National Health Surveillance Agency notified the health authorities in Sao Paulo to impose quarantine on four Argentine players: Emiliano Martinez, Buendía, Lo Kleso and Christian Romero, all of whom play in the Premier League.
According to the rules of the Brazilian authorities, travelers who have been to Great Britain, Northern Ireland, South Africa or India in the last 14 days must comply with the quarantine when entering Brazil, but Anvisa (Brazil’s national health monitoring agency) said: The four players involved did not say they were in England.
“Anvisa considers the situation to be a serious public health risk and has advised the local health authorities to establish a quarantine for players who have consequently been prohibited from participating in any activity and must be prohibited from remaining on Brazilian territory,” the website states.
The Argentine newspaper “Ole” reported that the federal police went to the hotel unit in which Argentina is located to prevent the four players from going to Corinthians Stadium, where they will face Brazil.
However, according to the same source, CONMEBOL mediated with the Brazilian Football Confederation, claiming that the agreement was made between the ten South American nations to hold matches in the qualifying stage for the 2022 World Cup. Ole also wrote that the warning from the South American Football Board was clear: If The quartet were banned from playing, Brazil would lose the match.
Brazil and Argentina will play, Sunday, 20:00.
