Four players have been handed two-game bans while FIFA asks for a replay.

Brazil’s

match against

Argentina

in the World Cup qualification games, which was suspended because of the incidents that happened, will be replayed, according to FIFA, but the date and the location of the match have not been decided yet.

The match between the arch-rivals was called off when Brazilian health officials came on the pitch because some of Argentina’s players had breached COVID-19 protocols. Argentina had brought three players from Premier League in a situation where there were rules against traveling from the UK to Brazil.

The Brazilian government accused

Emiliano Martinez

,

Cristian Romero

,

Giovani Lo Celso

, as well as

Emi Buendia

of giving false information on immigration forms.

FIFA started the investigation on the matter immediately, and now months after the incident, the governing body of football has asked the teams to replay the clash and has released a statement about the suspension, saying that Martinez, Buendia, Romero, and Lo Celso have been banned for two games.

The governing body says the suspension is

"for not complying with the FIFA Return to Football International Match Protocol".

Both sides have been fined as Brazil will have to pay 550,000 Swiss francs and Argentina 250,000 Swiss francs.
