The president of the AFA, Claudio Tapia, consulted CONMEBOL about the sanction of the captain and the boss Alejando Domínguez confirmed that he prescribed a year after the fact, according to the Albiceleste in their social networks.
Argentina’s 10th had been sent off in the match for third place against Chile for a cross with Gary Medel and had to meet a suspension match at the beginning of the Qualifiers.
The Argentine National Team, commanded by Lionel Scaloni, begins the road to Qatar 2022 on October 8 by receiving Ecuador in the Bombonera. The second match for Qualifiers will be against Bolivia in La Paz on the 13th.
However, it is not yet 100% confirmed that October will remain as the fixed date and there is the possibility that the start of competition will be postponed due to the inconvenience that the pandemic continues to cause in the region. On Monday 14 there will be a meeting between the members of CONMEBOL to take a definition.
