Brazil vs Argentina stopped as police invade pitch

Brazil’s World Cup qualifier with Argentina erupted into chaos, according to EXPRESS this happened seven minutes into the game when ANVISA personnel and Brazilian Federal Police invaded the pitch and stopped the match to detain four Premier League players who allegedly lied about completing quarantine upon entry to the country. Argentina then walked off the field of play, led by captain Lionel Messi.

Tottenham duo Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero plus Aston Villa pair Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia were right at the centre of the controversy. Discussions were ongoing behind the scenes at the stadium in a bid to decide how the game could be played.
