FIFA rejected this Monday the appeals presented by the AFA and the CBF and ratified that Brazil and Argentina must complete the suspended superclassic on September 5 of last year in São Paulo, corresponding to the South American Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
In February, the governing body of world football had determined that the match should be played on a date to be designated, while applying a two-game ban to the four Argentine players who play in the Premier League who were in that call, Emiliano Martínez , Cristian Romero, Giovanni Lo Celso and Emiliano Buendía, and strong economic sanctions for the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) and the Argentine Football Association (AFA).
For this reason, both organizations had appealed the ruling pending another resolution. However, FIFA rejected the arguments of both entities and ratified the first-instance ruling, so now they must schedule the new date for the match, which will not change anything for the positions, since both teams are guaranteed their place. in Qatar as first and second in the positions.
