Brazil Faces Points Deduction After Violence Rocked Argentina Match In World Cup by BrownEnvelop(m): 9:43pm On Nov 23, 2023
The FIFA disciplinary committee is reportedly set to open an investigation into the ugly scenes that marred Brazil’s game against Argentina on November 22.

The two South American heavyweights met in a 2026 World Cup qualifier match at the Maracana Stadium. Brazilian police were spotted hitting fans with batons after a fight broke out just before kick-off.

Argentina players and Brazil captain, Marquinhos headed over to the stands in an attempt to defuse the situation. Lionel Messi was then seen ordering his side to leave the pitch until order was restored.

A video doing the rounds on social media showed how ghastly the fracas was, with a couple of fans requiring immediate medical attention.

After the game, Messi led the criticism, calling for authorities to do better in protecting the fans. “This can’t be tolerated. It’s insane and it needs to end now.”


FIFA’s code of conduct on security
FIFA President, Gianni Infantino echoed the eight-time Ballon d’Or winner’s sentiments through an official statement on Instagram.

“There is no place for violence in football, on and off the field. Without exception, fans, players and staff have to be safe and secure to enjoy football.”
