Brazil v Argentina game suspended after 5 minutes
The World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina was suspended last night because of an alleged breach of quarantine rules by some of the Argentine team.
Health officials came out onto the pitch and stopped the game five minutes after it kicked off.
Four Premier League players – Emiliano Buendia, Emiliano Martinez, Giovani lo Celso and Cristian Romero – were involved in the fixture.
Under Brazilian rules, visitors who have been in the UK in the 14 days before entering the country must quarantine on arrival.
Just after kick-off, Brazilian health authorities have entered the pitch and brought a stop to the game between Brazil and Argentina 🚨
Reports before the game suggested local authorities had ordered Argentina's UK based players to be deported due to a failure to quarantine 😮 pic.twitter.com/aSuXZyzVPA
