Brazil's World Cup qualifier against Argentina has been sensationally suspended after authorities stormed the pitch to detain several Premier League players.

According to several reports, Tottenham's Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso and Aston Villa's Emiliano Martinez and Emi Buendia were sought by the Brazilian authorities for allegedly failing to follow the country's Covid-19 quarantine protocols.

The players reportedly did not quarantine as is required for entrants into Brazil from the UK, although CONMEBOL is said to have understood that the players were exempt from quarantining.

However, mere minutes after kick-off on Sunday, the health authorities flooded onto the pitch to stop Romero, Lo Celso and Martinez from playing. Buendia was on the substitute's bench.   

After much confusion and chaos, Argentina walked off the pitch.

The incident occurred just hours after Brazil's health regulator Anvisa said four Argentine players must isolate and could not play in the match.

The three were among four Argentine players who play in England's Premier League.
