Brazil vs Argentina match has stopped - Authorities stop the game to deport four Argentine players

Brazil and Argentina were to face off in a 2022 World Cup qualifier this Sunday evening, going head to head at the Neo Quimica Arena in Sao Paulo.

But, the match was stopped after four minutes because Brazilian authorities tried to deport four Argentina players, namely Emiliano Martinez, Cristian Romero, Gio Lo Celso and Emiliano Buendia.
