Which players were involved?
According to Goal.com, Aston Villa duo Emiliano Buendia and Emi Martinez, and Tottenham pair Giovani lo Celso and Cristian Romero were accused of falsifying documents to travel to Brazil from England prior to the heavyweight international fixture.

Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni took the decision to start Martinez, Lo Celso, and Romero anyway, leading to a dramatic intervention from the country’s health officials.

The Brazilian government originally recommended mandatory quarantine and deportation for the four accused players, but Scaloni and his squad boarded a plane to head home five hours after the suspension of the game amid the threat of detainment.
