Because FIFA would give the points to the Argentina National Team against Brazil

Everything indicates that FIFA’s decision will take a few weeks since the CBF also made its discharge. However on the side of the AFA there is confidence that the Argentine National Team will win the points and some do not rule out that the suspended game is completed at 6 ‘into the first half.


The AFA is legally advised by Andrés Patón Urich, founding partner of the Sports, Labor and Commercial Law Firm Avocats Sportifs and member of the FIFA Appeals Committee. They seize it Ariel Reck and Juan de Dios Crespo Pérez.

The FIFA Disciplinary Unit will have to be issued and the ruling appeal may be made to the FIFA Appeals Committee and then to CAS.

The Disciplinary Unit is made up of a president, the Colombian Jorge Palacios, a vice president, the Ghanaian Anin Yeboah, and 17 members, among whom is the Brazilian Francisco Schertel Mendes.

The match was suspended on Sunday, September 5 because Anvisa assured that the Argentine players Emiliano Martínez, Giovani Lo Celso, Emiliano Buendía and Cristian Romero failed to report that they had been to England in the last 14 days.

The Brazilian authorities decided to interrupt the meeting that had just started, pointing out that the fact that Martínez, Romero and Lo Celso were on the playing field was sufficient proof that they had broken the health bubble.
