Messi Condemns Referee For Argentina Loss To Brazil In COPA America
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.
Messi was powerless on the night as Brazil who was well drilled oppressed them. The match, however, didn’t go without its own share of controversy.
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
