The match between Brazil and Argentina, for the sixth date of the South American Qualifiers towards the Qatar 2022 World Cup, was suspended this Sunday and according to the South American Football Confederation, “FIFA will determine the steps to follow.”
Next, the message of CONMEBOL on their social networks:
“By decision of the match referee, the match organized by FIFA between Brazil and Argentina for the World Cup Qualifiers is suspended. The referee and the match commissioner will submit a report to the FIFA Disciplinary Committee, which will determine the steps to follow. These procedures strictly adhere to current regulations. The World Cup Qualifiers is a FIFA competition. All decisions concerning its organization and development are the exclusive power of that institution “.
Barely six minutes were played of the duel that faced the first two teams in qualifying on the way to the World Cup.
Venezuelan referee Jesús Valenzuela and the field commissioners formalized the suspension of the match by the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL), which sent the final decision on the incident to FIFA, responsible for the World Cup qualifiers.
The decision was made after Argentina decided to withdraw its team after prosecutors from the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa, regulator) of Brazil stormed the field, after 5 minutes, after the complaint that 4 players had provided false information on immigration.
