Brazilian Serie B midfielder Valdivia was substituted at half-time during Avai’s team’s match against CSA on Saturday after his club were notified he had tested positive for COVID-19.

Avai said Valdivia had undergone a previous test on Saturday so he could be released for the club’s next game against Juventude on Tuesday.

But when the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) notified the club that he had tested positive, Saturday’s match against CSA had already started.

“In the first half the CBF communicated … that Valdivia had tested positive,” Avai said in a statement, adding that the player was asymptomatic.

That’s why Valdivia was replaced. The club is now reviewing his isolation and return.

Match ends 1-1.

Brazil reported 61,567 new coronavirus cases on Saturday, and 1,050 deaths, the fifth day in a row with more than 1,000 deaths, the Health Ministry said.

More than 200,000 people have died from COVID-19 in Brazil.

Neymar came under heavy criticism after hosting a party with 500 guests in Brazil – Ghana Latest Football News, Live Scores, Results | Instant News

Neymar has come under criticism for planning a party in Brazil over the weekend.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has invited around 500 people to a mansion in Mangaratiba, in Rio de Janeiro, for an event that starts on Friday.

Brazil has been one of the hardest hit countries during the coronavirus pandemic, with 190,000 deaths reported from COVID-19 so far.

Neymar’s party will include a band to entertain his guests, who will spend part of his time in an underground disco with noise-canceling technology so as not to disturb his neighbors.

At the Brazilian’s request, there will be no cell phones at the event, so nothing will be recorded.

After the details of his plans were published in O Globo, Neymar came under heavy criticism from the Brazilian public.
