Brazil say they will not play suspended World Cup qualifying match against Argentina

Brazil  is  insisting  that  they  will  not  play  the  suspended  World Cup qualifying match against Argentina next month, arguing today that the risks are too high ahead of the tournament in Qatar.

The qualifier nearly one year ago in Sao Paulo was stopped by local health officials after six minutes due to covid-19 protocols regarding four Argentinian players.

Fifa fined the soccer bodies of both countries and demanded the match be played. 

Brazil’s confederation and Argentina’s federation took the case to the court for arbitration of sport, which is expected to rule later  this  month……The game would be in September but Fifa has not set a date.
