Tigres, the away side, initially started by watching from the first minute, but things quickly took an unexpected turn when they scored their first goal with their opponents not making any effort to play ball.

Veracruz players began to move and play just after the second goal, but Tigres increased their lead through a second Vargas goal in the eighth minute to make it 3-0.

"Footballers from the Tiburones Rojos del Veracruz have agreed not to play the next fixture of the 2019 Apertura against Tigres, a decision supported emphatically by the Mexican Footballers Association (AMFproMX) and all the footballers in the domestic game in solidarity with the clear interference of their labor rights", read part of the statement released from AMFproMX on Wednesday, ESPN reported.

He also said that the players "felt abandoned by the Liga MX and that their human rights hadn't been respected".

'We were once again the joke of the nation, or the world with this topic'.

Veracruz players had originally planned to not even play to match in protest of the wages, which according to ESPN go back six months for some players.

"They knew that we were going to stay still for three minutes, it's sad", said Veracruz defender Carlos Salcido.

"They told us they were going to stop just for a minute and then it was three". "We said we would only stay still for a minute".

Veracruz forward Angel Reyna told TV Azteca that Tigres players knew that his side would protest for the first three minutes of the game, but proceeded to play anyway. The club is now rooted to the bottom of the Liga MX table, having picked up four points and scored just seven goals in 12 games so far this season.
