- Police refer to ‘possible crime of supplying false information’
- Martínez, Buendía, Romero and Lo Celso under investigation
Brazilian federal police have opened an inquiry to investigate the four Argentina players whose presence at Sunday’s World Cup qualifier in Brazil caused the match to be abandoned.
Aston Villa’s Emiliano Martínez and Emi Buendía and Tottenham’s Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso may face charges of misrepresentation if it is established that they submitted false information to Brazilian authorities about the places they had been to before entering the country.
