The Brazilian health authorities have put in guarding striker Willian from participating for the first time with his new Corinthians team in the Brazilian soccer league against Atletico Guianense.
On Saturday, health authorities said Willian must first undergo a 14-day quarantine after arriving from England.
And he added: “Willian, who joined yours club belonging to Sao Paulo 10 days ago, he agreed to enter in Brazil to undergo a two-week quarantine due to his coming from England, in compliance with the rules applied in the country to prevent coronavirus infection. “
Health officials confirmed that they had warned Corinthians and the Brazilian Football Confederation not to break the regulation, saying they had reached the team’s hotel before the match.
The move comes even as former Arsenal and Chelsea player Willian has been training for some time with his new teammates last week.
These steps came a week after Brazil’s health authorities suspended a World Cup qualifier match between Brazil and Argentina five minutes after it started, due to the participation of four Argentine players from England and not subject to quarantine for a period of 14 days.
