In what comes as a potential hindrance to Tottenham, Marca (as relayed by Sport Witness) have revealed that the World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina, which was suspended last month, could soon be rearranged.
The World Cup qualifier between Brazil and Argentina was called off last month after health officials walked on the pitch to stop the game, accusing Argentina’s Premier League stars of not disclosing they had been in the UK over the past 14 days.
Tottenham pair, Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero were caught in the middle of that storm and both players, along with Davison Sanchez had to serve a 14-day quarantine period in Croatia before returning to the UK.
As a result, the three players missed Tottenham’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace and their Europa Conference League game against Rennes.
Spurs were also initially facing the prospect of having their South American stars miss the clash against Newcastle this weekend as a result of their involvement in this week’s World Cup qualifiers.
However, according to the latest reports, all four of Tottenham’s South American internationals are expected to be available for the trip to St James’ Park.
According to Marca’s latest update, Spurs could face another major inconvenience in the coming weeks or months, with CONMEBOL revealing there will be a new date announced for the Brazil-Argentina clash which was suspended last month.
The report explains that since the schedule in South America has been pretty tight, re-arranging the fixture might not come as good news for the Premier League clubs who have Brazil or Argentinian internationals in their squad.

After the embarrassing situation that occurred in Brazil last month, hopefully, CONMEBOL and FIFA will come together to ensure that the scheduling of the Brazil-Argentina game does not have too much of an impact on the schedule of various clubs.
