Alex Sandro jokes about Brazil friendly after chaotic qualifier against Argentina

Juventus full-back Alex Sandro posted a photo of him suffering a knock during an internal friendly game with Brazil, after the World Cup Qualifier against Argentina was suspended.

A World Cup Qualifier between the two rivals was abandoned after four Argentina players allegedly violated Brazilian COVID-19 restrictions.

Federal police and Brazil’s health authorities entered the pitch to stop the game after only seven minutes, having discovered four Argentina players had disobeyed the coronavirus restrictions in place.

People who have been in the UK, South Africa or India are not allowed to enter the country, unless they are Brazilian citizens or have a permanent residency in the country.

The match was officially suspended, and Brazil ended up playing an internal friendly, where Alex Sandro suffered a knock and posted a photo of the tough treatment he was given by his own teammates.

“Brazil vs. Brazil,” Alex Sandro wrote with a laughing emoticon.
