FIFA World Cup qualifier Qatar 2022 Cancelled the match between Brazil vs Argentina;
The Brazilian and Argentine federations reached a settlement with the International Football Federation before the Court of Arbitration for Sport to dispense with the FIFA Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifier, which was discontinued minutes after its launch last September.
The start of the meeting in São Paulo took place only seven minutes until representatives from the Brazilian health authorities stormed the stadium, leading to a significant controversy that led Argentina’s players to enter the dressing room and not return to the pitch, which brought the game to a final halt.
Health authorities said four professional Argentine players in the English Premier League had to go into “quarantine immediately” for violating the coronavirus pandemic protocols.
The Argentine and Brazilian soccer federations and FIFA settled with the Court of Arbitration for Sport that the match should not be played.
He added that the date set for 22 September would be allocated for holding two friendly matches for each of the two elected members in preparation for the World Cup Finals scheduled for 20 November to 18 December.
Last Wednesday, the Brazilian Federation rejected the return of the match scheduled for 5 September 2021 in São Paulo in the sixth round of South America’s qualifiers.
“After receiving the request of coach Tete and coordinator Juninho Paulista, the president of the Brazilian Football Federation, Ednaldo Rodríguez, will seek to suspend the match,” the Brazilian federation said Wednesday in a statement.
The Brazilian Federation’s statement indicated that FIFA agreed with the Argentine Federation to cancel the match.
“The Brazilian Federation will accept the agreement proposed by Viva and the Argentine Federation not to play the match against Argentina in September.”
“Given the attitude of the coaching staff, we will now ask Viva to cancel the game. Our priority is to win the sixth World Cup in Qatar “.
