Today (4) employees of the Ministry of Health of the State of Sao Paulo are planning to visit the hotel where the Argentine men’s soccer team is staying to investigate possible violations of health rules by the four players of the team who play for clubs in England: Emiliano Martinez, Buendia (Aston Villa), Christian Romero and Lo Celso ( Tottenham).
Anvisa (the national health monitoring agency) has informed the Sao Paulo Health Department that the Quartet has not gone through the mandatory quarantine period to enter Brazil and does not even have a special permit, as has happened in other periods of FIFA’s history in the past. to me UOL Sports, the agency confirms that the technical visit will take place during the afternoon to better understand the situation and check whether there is approval from some authorities for the players to stay in the country. From here, an opinion will emerge that may object to their participation in the match against Brazil tomorrow (5) at 4 pm.
According to Decree No. 655 of June 23, 2021 for the year The Presidency of the Republic and the Civil House, a traveler “of origin or date of passage through the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Republic of South Africa and the Republic of India in the last fourteen days, upon entering Brazilian territory, must remain in quarantine for a period of fourteen days.”
This is the case where Emiliano Martinez, Buendia, Cristian Romero and Lo Celso fit together. They sailed from England to Argentina and then to Venezuela, where they beat the local team 3-1 on Thursday in a World Cup qualifier in Qatar. As a result, the group arrived in Brazil to play tomorrow’s match (5), at 4 pm, at the New Coimica Arena, against the Brazilian national team, and even trained in Sao Paulo in the presence of the quartet.
Although they did not come directly from England, the players have been in the country for a few days and this requires quarantine in the absence of a special permit. The Argentine Football Association has yet to comment on the case.
The investigation by the Sao Paulo government into the possible violation of health rules is taking place on the same date as FIFA that the Brazilian team used 12 players who were vetoed by their clubs for reasons related to the epidemic. Teams from England and Russia have banned calls precisely because the athletes will be subject to quarantine upon their return from Brazil, thus embezzling clubs in important matches, including the Champions League.
The Argentine Football Association has struck an agreement with the clubs of the four England players to allow them to travel to the triple round of qualifying, unlike the Brazilian Football Confederation, which plans to join FIFA to question the veto.
