The referee understood that it had to expel to the two players, and like this did it. Surprisingly -or no-, the true is that the VAR did not warn to the referee that it had made a mistake, and that as a lot it would have to have been a yellow card for each player. Finalised the party, in any case, the best player of the world could not hide his indignation in front of the media.

"We do not have to be part of this corruption, of this lack of respect that did us during all this Glass"

And it left clear that, in his opinion, the tournament had been manipulated from the referee's point of view against of Argentina, that has gone out clearly prejudiced in the last days. "With a yellow had finished for the two, could have reviewed the expulsion and did not use the VAR, but perhaps what said the past time happened bill", explained in first instance on the action with Medel.

"Always I say the truth, this leaves me calm. Afterwards, if what say has repercussions is not mine part, I always am sincere".

"But further of the bronca of not being able to finish this party, go me calm, with the high and proud head of this group that gave everything. I expect that it respect this group, that has a lot to give. The important is that the team finished well the Glass", added the captain of the albiceleste, visibly bother by all the sucedido but, at least, satisfied by the performance of the team trained by Lionel Scaloni.

A Glass America of big difficulty for Argentina

To continuation, analysed how has been the Glass America of Argentina and defended to Scaloni of the criticisms. "I think that Scaloni also was growing to the pair of the team, of the group. We find an idea of game, a good dynamic. The group showed a lot of personality; it is not easy to begin losing (Colombia) and afterwards empatando (Paraguay). This did us stronger and finish of a very positive way. Today we find the goals and this does that the team play of another way, gives you more freedoms. But so much east like the party with Brazil were good", concluded Messi.

The Argentinian star of the FC Barcelona decided not attending to the delivery of medals in signal of protest, no only by the red card received against Chile but by the referee's injustices that has suffered Argentinian along the Glass America 2019. Messi, more got angry that never.
