    Argentine players always had the advantage, after all, they won two world cups like that. remember the 6x0 over Peru in 1978 and the famous "hand of god" in 86? The Argentine delegation was notified days in advance, but they ignored it, as they once again wanted to take advantage.

    by the end it was a legal problem made by those national soccer organizations, who ignored the local law and negotiated behind sanitary health authorities knowledgement. If Argentinian organization told the truth since the beggining, the government could allow the players to stay on Brazil (even though Brazil is living a political and social clash atm)

    Tim alluded to it slightly -- but the truth is that Brazil and by extension the Brazilian Government did want this game to be played because the Brazil team lacked their Premier League players while Argentina had their PL players, three of which are starters. This can be viewed as a competitive advantage over the home team (Brazil). Having lost the Copa Final at home, there is no way Brazil wanted to lose another game at home and much less because it was undermanned and even much less under the Bolsonaro regime, which has their hands in everything. In other words, it would be naive to ignore the fact that result of the recent Copa Final also played a role in the farce that unfolded. South America football at its finest.

    Dude is spreading miss information, why would Aston Villa and Tottenham let these players go?? Because they struck a deal with the Argentine bond, with rules in place when they had to go back to the UK. on the other hand the Brazillian federation did not come to an arrangement that's why all these players were absent. Then they didn't tell these players that they weren't allowed to enter Brasil, and Argentina had rules and agreement from Comnebol and the football federation of Brasil to let these players play if needed. But the health authorities weren't having any of it. So they new about this and waited until kick off, just to get some attention. Argentina was not in the wrong at all. so it would be stupid and criminal to give this victory away to Brasil. It's a country problem that has nothing to do with Argentina, it has to do with communication between different apartments inside Brasil.

    There is some abstract implication that the Argentinian players "lied" about having been in England. Bud....these players play in the EPL! It's not exactly an underworld, little-known league! It's as high profile as it gets! How can you not know they play for Tottenham and Aston Villa?!?!? It's on INTERNATIONAL TV! Perhaps you don't watch football....that's is about the ONLY way you are THAT clueless. BOTH teams (management included) know who plays what and where they play. This was not a surprise last minute signing of the Argentinian players to British teams! Duuhh..... The Brazilian government chose to allow the Copa America to take place (which they hoped to win, but when they didn't...). So, they decided THIS TIME, that these players "lied". What...?? Did the Brazilian government/health organization FORGET these guys played (July 10) in Brazil?!?!?!? In-other-words, they arranged the details for the Copa America but decided THIS time, to nail these 4 players (which played in the Copa in July!). What a joke. It's all on Brazil and I don't mean the players or fans. How EMARRASSING!! If it was a "health concern", why did they not request a pre-game test? We all know why. ;)

The players where there for 3 days

    Here is all you need to know about that part of the footballing world: It's a confederation (CONMEBOL) of only 10 nations (not even the entirity of that continent), of which up to HALF can book their place in a world cup, comprised of 2 powerhouses who basically run things while the other 8 fight for scraps in one gigantic incestious sham 💩show topped off with a heavy dose of corruption latinamerica-style.

    This brings to the fore a common problem with FA in most countries. Because they are rich and famous, they think they are BIGGER than other Government agencies, and often try to bully them! The Brazilian health authority has NO blame here. (1) Their COVID-19 protocol was clear and in place months ago. Argentina & Brazilian FA could have requested for a waiver days before coming to Brazil, and they didn't. (2) Argentina FA committed a "crime" by returning an incomplete form. (3) Brazil Health authority met with both FAs more 24 hours before the match and insisted the players quarantine in their hotels but won't be DEPORTED. (4) They published (made public) 3 hours before the match that those players are not expected in the stadium. (5) They found out AFTER Argentina left the hotel that their rules had been flouted. (6) If the health authority waited till the match finished, what would have happened then? They had to let the FAs know that they are NOT bigger than the Government. Kudos to them, and shame on the FAs, especially Argentina FA that lied on the form.

    Political stunt by the Brazilian side that knew they would lose twice in their country. COMNEBOL had an agreement approved by the sanitary government orgs if each country participating with strict protocol. You can’t sign an agreement to make an exception and then nullify it. Especially if they had three days, these are famous soccer players immigration service in Brazil knows who they are.

    What actually happened: Brazil has a government related but independent agency (called ANVISA) that regulates any health related situations, they are the authority on these matters. They told Argentina that the 4 players hailing from England couldn't play, in fact they should stay quarantined in the hotel waiting for deportation. Someone from COMEBOL (even tough they had 0 authority) told Argentina they could play, it was fine. Argentina then broke Brazilian regulations and went to the pitch with the 4 players that could not play or leave the hotel. The Brazilian authorities went to the stadium (they tried to go to the hotel but Argentina had left already) to tell Argentina those 4 players needed to be removed from there immediately, but Argentina, alongside COMEBOL and apparently the Brazilian football association as well, barred the locker room and stopped the ANVISA agent from getting in there, so the agent simply contacted the Brazilian federal police and waited till the game started to apprehend the four players. If FIFA was serious not only should Argentina loose the match via WO, they should also be excluded from the World Cup, they knowingly and blatantly went against Brazil's health and safety regulations.

    Imposible for the Brazilian authorities not to know these players came from UK. There has been huge discusions since PL said they'd support clubs not letting CONMEBOL players go, and the subsequent decision for Brazilian players to stay and for the Argies to go--it was all over news throughout the process (here football news is also shown during regular news, so even if you are not interested in football you see it). And the players themselves tweeted they were coming, which was also in the news. Plus, dont they scan passports at the airport?? They come 3 days later, after they had multiple practices outside...if it wasn't a show for political purposes, I can't find an explanation.
