The FIFA Appeal Committee has concluded that Brazil's 2022 World Cup qualifier against Argentina must be replayed.



The decision was obtained after the football associations of the countries submitted appeals.

The September qualifier was called off minutes after kickoff when Brazilian health officials arrived on the field to prevent Argentina's players from playing in England.

They alleged the players violated the COVID-19 quarantine guidelines of the country.

“After analysing the submissions of both parties and considering all circumstances of the case, the Appeal Committee confirmed that the match would be replayed,” FIFA said in a statement.
“[FIFA] also upheld the fine of 50,000 Swiss francs ($50,322) that was imposed on both associations as a result of the abandonment,” it added.
Both teams have already qualified for the World Cup in Qatar later this year, with Brazil topping the South American standings and Argentina finishing second.
FIFA had also fined Brazil’s FA (CBF) and Argentina’s Football Association (AFA) for their failure to ensure “order and safety.”

Those fines were reduced to 250,000 Swiss francs and 100,000 Swiss francs in Monday’s appeal.
