FIFA President Reacts to Differences Between Brazil and Argentina: “This is Unacceptable and Harms Football” – 2022 World Cup



FIFA President Reacts to Differences Between Brazil and Argentina: "This is Unacceptable and Harms Football" - 2022 World Cup

FIFA President Gianni Infantino said today that the 2022 World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina, suspended due to intervention by Brazilian health authorities, should be resolved on the pitch.

On September 5, in Sao Paulo, the match was suspended for five minutes due to alleged violations of the protocols of the covid-19 pandemic.

“It’s always good to decide games on the pitch, not off the pitch. [de supostamente fornecer informações falsas na chegada] this cannot happen and the match cannot be interrupted in this way. This is unacceptable and harmful to football, “- defended the leader of the organization that monitors world football, at a press conference held today in Buenos Aires.

However, Infantino reminds that “this is not always possible, as there are rules”, so it is necessary to wait to “see what the disciplinary bodies of FIFA decide”.

The National Health Oversight Agency (Anvisa), escorted by police, broke into a playground in São Paulo, claiming that four Argentine footballers did not comply with the covid-19 pandemic after being urged to remain in quarantine at a hotel.

The eternal South American rivals met at the Neo Chimik Arena in the South American Zone qualifier for Mundial2022, which was canceled five minutes later.

The event in the match between “the two most glorious teams in South America” ​​marked a moment of “madness” but also exemplified “the challenges that COVID-19 presents” for clubs, continental associations and governments, Infantino said, on top.

Anvisa accused the four Albiseleste players, who play in England, of providing “false information” in their entry details into Brazil, without disclosing their stay on British soil in the previous 14 days, which would have required a quarantine period as the country was included in the red list of Brazil in the fight against covid-19.

Giovanni Lo Chelso and Christian Romero, coached at Tottenham by the Portuguese Nuno Espiritu Santo, Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendía, who play for Aston Villa, are players targeted by the authorities.

Eventually, upon arrival in Brazil, the four players were quarantined and advised to “return to their country of origin.”

After some discussion, the Argentina team left the field for the match, while the Brazilian footballers remained on the field for training.

The Argentines, protected by the permission of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL), denied any misconduct, and the interim president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, Ednaldo Rodriguez, felt that Anvisa “exceeded the limits of common sense” by interrupting the game.

This has never happened to me in my life! ”- said the commentator. , and then, as reported by “AS”, there is a long silence.

BALL – the wound is still open (Benfica)



BALL - the wound is still open (Benfica)

The days following the loss to Sporting have been challenging for the players and the Benfica technical team. On Saturday at the Seixal, the team appeared in a tense atmosphere, which, of course, was caused by a very negative result and performance, but the holders carried out only a recovery training. Sunday was a day off, and yesterday the coach started preparations for the fight with the Ukrainians in the last round of the Champions League stage.

The wound in the derby at Benfica is still open. First of all, because everyone knows that Sporting’s superiority is undeniable. Even without center-back Coates and midfielder Paligny, two of the most powerful players on the team, the Lions were more of a team, with an idea and strategy that Red lacked.

Jorge Jesus, as usual, came to Seixal very early to prepare the training and, as a result, the strategy of the fight with the Ukrainians. The coach does not want the players to get stuck in the derby, but is thinking about the match with Dynamo Kiev, in which the Reds can reach the 1/8 finals of the Champions League – they have to win and hope that Barcelona will not beat Bayern. , in Munich. And the message is really to take a step forward, at the moment thinking about Dynamo Kiev.

Triumph can help relieve immediate pressure.
