Kick Off: 17:00 Local (16:00 BST) Ricardo Gomes, the Brazilian captain, was sent off with a red card in the 85th minute The end of the match was controversial with Brazilian player Branco accusing the Argentina training staff of giving him a bottle of water laced with tranquillizers while they were tending to an injured player. This came years after Maradona revealed the news on an Argentine television show. The Argentine Football Association and the team coach of the time, Carlos Bilardo, denied that the "holy water" incident ever took place.
