๐Ÿ“– Premier League players among four Argentinians banned by FIFA

FIFA always sounds ruthless don't they? Four Argentine players have been suspended for breaking Covid-19 regulations last September.

The four banned players, who include three English Premier League regulars, breached the Covid-19 rules during a game against Brazil in Sao Paulo.

As Futaa reported last year, the drama hit during the match when local police invaded the pitch to arrest Argentinian players who had not adhered to lockdown regulations ahead of the match.

"Brazilian rules at the time stated anyone that had been in the UK in the 14 days prior to arriving in the country must quarantine for 14 days immediately upon arrival," the BBC reported.

"Following an investigation, Fifa banned Buendia, Martinez and Romero, as well as Villarreal midfielder Lo Celso, on loan from Tottenham, for two matches. That rules them out of the remaining home game against Venezuela and away trip to Ecuador," the report added.

Meanwhile, FIFA is preparing for the 2022 World Cup that will take place in Qatar in November.
