The Argentine Football Association was not satisfied with the ruling by FIFA, which rejected its appeal and upheld the decision to reschedule the Brazil-Argentina match suspended in September. For this reason, the entity announced that it will appeal the ruling before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAS) to prevent the match from being played.

“The Argentine Football Association will request today the grounds for both decisions and will make the corresponding appeals before the Arbitration Court of Sport (TAS) in order to continue defending the rights of our selected team,” the AFA reported through a official statement.

On Monday morning, FIFA confirmed that the truncated match of the South American Qualifiers for Qatar 2022, played in September of last year, must be played, rejecting the appeals that had been presented by both the AFA and the Brazilian Confederation. In the same ruling, world soccer’s governing body agreed to halve the fine of 200,000 Swiss francs (just over $200,000).
