Football governing body FIFA has actually opened a disciplinary examination into the Brazil v Argentina World Cup qualifier which was deserted in the middle of farcical situations late on Sunday.

“FIFA regrets the scenes preceding the suspension of the match between Brazil and Argentina for the [South American confederation] CONMEBOL qualifiers … which prevented millions of fans from enjoying a match between two of the most important football nations in the world,” it stated Monday.

“The first match reports have been sent to FIFA. This information will be analysed by the competent disciplinary bodies and a decision will be taken in due course.”

Six minutes after kick-off in Sao Paulo the video game was stopped as employees from the health authority Anivsa tried to get rid of UK-based Argentina gamers for apparently breaching coronavirus quarantine guidelines.

Anivsa had actually stated soon prior to the video game that Premier League quartet Emiliano Martinez, Cristian Romero, Giovani Lo Celso and Emiliano Buendia had actually been purchased to quarantine due to their existence in the UK – a red list nation in Brazil – within the last 2 week.
