According to Argentine press reports, the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) decided to suspend the referees of the match between Argentina and Brazil in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

And a goalless draw dominated the confrontation between Argentina and Brazil in the 14th round of the South American qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup.

According to the Argentine newspaper Ole, referee Andreas Cunha (referee of the arena) and Esteban Ostojic (referee of the mouse) were suspended in the Argentina-Brazil World Cup qualifier match, due to their performance during the match.

The newspaper said that the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) decided to suspend the duo because of their poor performance during the match, especially for not sending the referee Nicolas Otamendi, the Argentine defender, after hitting Rafinha, the Brazilian player, with his elbow, and not calling the video referee to referee the arena.

It is worth noting that Brazil coach Tite attacked the referee after the match, saying: “Being an unusual referee, refereeing requires a team and those who were in the video room were impossible not to have seen Otamendi’s elbow in Rafinhas face.”
