Lionel Messi and Argentina failed to make it to the Copa America finals for the first time in 12 years.
- Lionel Messi has stated in a post match interview that the match officials bullsh*ts has distracted them
The Albiceleste has once again faced disappointment as they were thrashed out of Copa America by Fierce rivals Brazil in the semi finals with a disappointed 2-0 defeat.
“They [the officials] had booked a lot of bullsh*t, but they didn’t even check the VAR, that’s incredible.
“That happened all over the game. At the first glance of contact, they ruled in their [Brazil’s] favor and this kind of bullsh*t distracted us from the game.
“There is no excuses for us, but we need to review this, analyse it and let’s hope CONMEBOL does something about it.
“I think we played a great game. We made a great effort and they were not superior to us.”
And prior to Lionel Messi’s Comment, the albiceleste had fired more shots at Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson than their opponents managed in attack (14-4) and struck the woodwork twice as they came agonisingly close to getting back into the contest.
Sergio Aguero was left fuming as his fine header which already beat the Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson ended up at the crossbar and the Argentine’s was punished immediately after the incident by Gabriel Jesus, Lionel Messi himself came close to score but his shot slammed at the post and ends the Albiceleste hopes of coming back.
