Messi Finishes Copa America With Red Card After Furious Medel Clash by kidap: 9:10pm On Jul 06
Lionel Messi's Copa America campaign finished just over 45 minutes early on Saturday after the Argentina captain was sent off along with Chile's Gary Medel in the third-place play-off.

Messi and Argentina came flying out of the blocks in Arena Corinthians, after tasting elimination in controversial circumstances at the hands of Brazil on Tuesday.

After just 12 minutes the Albiceleste went ahead, Sergio Aguero converting past Gabriel Arias in the Chile net after latching on to a brilliant quickly taken free-kick from the Barcelona wizard.

But both teams were soon to be reduced to 10 men as tensions in Sao Paulo boiled over.

A seemingly innocuous scuffle between Messi and notoriously bad-tempered Chile hardman 'Pitbull' Medel quickly escalated into a full-on brawl towards the end of the first half.

And while Leo certainly helped provoke his opponent by pushing and harrying him past his own goal-line, the Argentina captain was largely motionless when Medel came back throwing his shoulders and forehead repeatedly into his adversary's person.

If Lionel Messi ends his international football career with this match, it will be a dent on his image.

That means he started his international career with a red card and ending it with a red card

A GOAT going home as “asun”

Undeserved red cards. Just warn both players, or show them a yellow at worst. I don't see how that incident calls for a red card.

Meanwhile, that might be the organisers of the Copa America trying to get back at Messi for his comments after Argentina's semifinal match with Brazil.

So he's not allowed to see red card or what..

You know how many red cards the one you are rooting for has seen in his career so far?

As usual they must find a way to criticize him..

Y'all forget most of the time he is sorry was a human before he became an Alien

For those that were fixing Nigeria to play Egypt, please loud it to them that the host nation has entered their various homes through the backyard of the stadium..

Just like last year's World Cup, this nations cup is as unpredictable as it gets

You obviously didnt watch the game. When Ronaldo got an undeserved card against Valencia many people defended him.

The red card was totally undeserved. Messi didn't do anything to medel. If messi dived when medel challenged him, he wouldn't have gotten a card sef.
