Barcelona Superstar and Argentina Captain Lionel Messi expressed his anger after Brazil beat them 2-0 in the Copa America semi-final in Belo Horizonte.
Messi directed his anger to the officials, saying the referee was supposed to consult VAR before he award a penalty to Brazil which backed their loss.
“They were not better than us. They found the net early and the second goal came from a penalty (to Aguero) they didn’t award .The officiating was crazy,”
“They (the officials) had booked a lot of bullsh*t but they didn’t even check the VAR, that’s incredible,”
“It was like that all match .It was buls**t that they were doing it all match. There is no excuse, it must be looked into. Hopefully, CONMEBOL does something about these kind of referees. Because we did everything to try and advance but the officials stacked deck against us,”
“I don’t believe they will do anything because Brazil controls everything, so it is very complicated. But I don’t think we should feel bad for anything. It didn’t happen and we had bad luck,” Messi said.
Messi is one of the best footballers in the World.
