 Brazil v Argentina Chaos
Topic Originator: GG4  
Date:   Sun 5 Sep 21:16

Game stopped after 10 minutes after Brazilian Federal police tried to detain 4x Argentinian players for failing to disclose they are based in the UK before the game started, therefore breaking Brazilian Covid laws.

Unbelievable Jeff!

"Ironic in a country where their leader, Bolsonaro, handled Covid as well as Trump!"

What a complete and utter shambles. I can`t believe the Brazilian police didn`t know about this before the game started, which suggests it was a cynical ploy to disrupt the visitors and pave the way for an easy win on the pitch or an even easier 3-0 win awarded "a tavolino", by FIFA.

The BBC appear to believe the game will be replayed at a later date:-


I can`t imagine the clubs of the players involved would be very happy about that. It`s incumbent on FIFA to determine which country is at fault (Argentina`s coach said that they were not notified of any breaches beforehand) and award the points to the other team.

Not your average Sunday League player.
