Lionel Messi has vented his anger at the refereeing of the Brazil Vs Argentina COPA America semi-final game which his side lost 2-0.
The match had an instance in which Argentina would have been awarded a penalty if VAR had been used. That was when Dani Alves brought down Sergio Aguero in the box. The referee didn’t stop play which led to Brazil going for a counter-attack and scoring in the process.
Speaking after the game, Messi questioned why VAR was never used throughout the game. He also called on CONMEBOL to look into it, a thing he believes will never happen because Brazil has so much influence.
#CopaAmerica Messi evidentemente molesto hace llamado a @CONMEBOL por los arbitrajes. Hace un repaso al VAR y la calidad de los colegiados: "en esta copa se cansaron de cobrar boludeces. Mano boludas, fueras boludas, penales pelotudos". pic.twitter.com/1f8ApRqMFM
