Lionel Messi shared his thoughts regarding the Brazilian referee on Instagram, following Argentina’s 1-0 win.
Messi posted on his Instagram a picture of the Argentina national team in regards to the 1-0 win vs. Peru in the World Cup qualifiers. However, Messi also mentioned the Brazilian referee. Here was his post:
“Difficult match, difficult to play. A lot of wind, they were playing deep, leaving little space for us. The referee always does this when he referee’s us, as if he does it on purpose. But well, 3 important points and we’re close to our objective.”
The Argentine could be talking about a penalty for Argentina which was not given after Lautaro Martinez was stepped on in the first half. Or possibly the decision to give Peru a penalty, one which was not scored.
