Both teams were four minutes into their world cup qualifier and all of a sudden Brazilian health officials invaded the pitch and stopped the match, citing four Argentine players who play in the English premier League, maintaining that they had lied on their Covid immigration forms.
They were in effect about to be deported from Brazil and/or face criminal charges, but after a lengthy three hour wait at Sao Paolo airport, they were able to fly back to BA, where they remain tightly cocooned in Ezeiza VIP.
Quite rightly, many are asking why this was handled so crudely. The team had travelled from Caracas three days previously, so the Brazilian health/immigration officials had plenty of time to take action at the hotel or wherever.
It's no coincidence that President Bolsanaro's son tweeted a very harsh criticism of the Argentine team and I can't help thinking that that this was a complete set up from the top.
