Breaking news out of Argentina that Lionel MESSI will miss Argentina’s match on Tuesday against Bolivia.
Fox Sports Argentina are reporting that Lionel MESSI will miss Argentina’s World Cup Qualifying match tomorrow against Bolivia and would be suspended for 2-4 matches. The incident happened following the match when MESSI was seen using foul language against one of the officials. As we reported earlier, Lionel MESSI spoke out against a referee following Argentina’s 1-0 win against Chile which started this entire turn of events. The initial news was that the referee had not included the altercation in his match report but it appears as though the Chilean FA sent the video over to FIFA who contacted the AFA stating that disciplinary action could be in place.
We will continue to cover this as news develops.
