A BOLA - “National teams must comply with health laws,” says Infantino (FIFA).

Gianni Infantino spoke yesterday for the first time about the Brazil-Argentina qualifying match for the 2022 World Cup, which was interrupted at six minutes Sunday by the Brazilian National Health Agency (Anvisa) due to the deportation of four Argentine athletes.

According to the FIFA President, “Teams must comply with health rules when players go to play.” In the specific case of the game at the Neo Química Arena in São Paulo, the final decision on which will be made by the disciplinary bodies of FIFA, “already officially documented,” according to the organization, the official said “it was madness.” “But we need to solve this the problem with covid-19. I ask everyone – clubs, associations and governments – to show solidarity and not discriminate. Many governments show this solidarity because we strictly adhere to health protocols around the world, “he said.

At the moment, all scenarios are open: Brazil point loss, Argentina point loss or replay.

The bout between the two winning teams in South America was suspended by a referee after Anvis’s agents and federal police raided the field to deport four Albiselestes players, three on the field and one on the bench, for allegedly lying. for immigration upon arrival in Brazil. Martinez and Buendía from Aston Villa and Romero and Lo Celso from Tottenham have omitted the fact that they have been in the United Kingdom for the previous 14 days, where they live and play, which would have forced them to comply with a 14-day quarantine upon arrival. to Brazil.

Meanwhile, Anvisa released a document for the Brazilian press reporting on Saturday’s meeting with the Brazilian Ministry of Health, São Paulo Epidemiological Surveillance Service, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), Conmebol and the Argentine Football Association (AFA). may shed some light on what happened: at the meeting, the latter was asked to “issue a request for exclusion” to the Civil Chamber under the President of the Republic, which has ministerial status in Brazil, “urgently so that the documentation can be analyzed before the start of the game.”

According to Bylaw 655, the same as requiring quarantine for those arriving from the United Kingdom, there are exceptions provided for “born or naturalized Brazilians”, so Willian and Andreas Pereira, reinforcements from Corinthians and Flamengo recently arrived from England, were the opportunity to disseminate at will, as well as for “foreign professionals working in an international organization”, a provision that opened the doors to the Argentine quartet.

AFA attempted to route this request to the Civil House, but a communication failure prevented it from reaching its destination. According to Globoesporte, the request was addressed to Luis Eduardo Ramos, minister of the Civil Chamber until August 4, and not to Ciro Nogueira, who succeeded him. In parallel, the Civil Chamber said in a statement that “the consultations may have been held during the holidays” – today is Brazil’s Independence Day and the country has a four-day bridge – but “there was no reaction.” …

As such, Argentine officials believed they had done whatever was necessary for their athletes, while Anvisa believed that AFA despised the goodwill shown by the surveillance agency, creating the confusion seen in the world.

BALL - Lost from St.  Gilloise on Saturday and leaves a warning to SC Braga (Europa League)

Club Brugge’s win at the Estadio do Dragao left the football world open-mouthed and still echoes in Belgium, but Saint-Gilloise’s visit to Braga won’t have such a devastating impact, João Gamboa is convinced.

“I think Dragao’s 0-4 won’t happen again, but Saint-Gilloise are a great team and Braga might have difficulty imposing their game,” warns the midfielder, who switched from Estoril to “Leven”. .

Gamboa is well aware of the value of the warriors of the European enemy. Not so much because of the natural knowledge of Belgian football, which he acquired in three months, but because of fresh memories: Leuven met Saint-Gilloise on Saturday and lost at home 0-3.

“Saint-Gilloise is not at the level of Brugge, but they are a team with a very good organization and quite dangerous in counterattacks,” signals the midfielder, who highly appreciates the opposing Warriors’ team. an “intellectual” form of how he plans his game, as well as an indication of some personality that can make a difference.

“Center Burgess is very strong and he makes a difference in set pieces; and Boniface [avançado] It has great quality. In the game with Leuven, he almost did not score a goal from the center of the field, ”he is recovering.

Despite Saint-Gilloise’s ability to make a name for themselves, Gamboa believes the Warriors have a reason to win tomorrow’s game: “Braga is stronger and has European experience that could be decisive against the Belgians.”
