They didn't let him play: They beat him throughout the game and Messi took it out on social media against the referee

Lionel Messi did not have a great night at the Estadio Monumental. In fact, he did not manage to impose his game throughout the game. The reason? The rough game of the Peruvian team. About that, he complained on social networks.

Lionel Messi was satisfied with the triumph of the Argentine National Team. The captain of the national team celebrated the victory over Peru 1-0 at the Monumental on the 12th date of the South American Qualifiers with a post on his Instagram account where he also shot at the Brazilian referee Wilton Sampaio.

"Hard game, difficult to play. A lot of wind, they all behind leaving few spaces. The referee always who directs us does the same, it seems that he does it on purpose. But hey 3 important points that brings us closer to the goal", wrote Lionel Messi on his personal Instagram.

The Brazilian referee annulled two goals for Argentina and charged a penalty for Peru. But in the review, the performance of the judge seemed correct. Cristian Romero, at the behest of the VAR, was in an advanced position when he headed the goal in the first half. Emiliano Martínez touched Farfán and caused his fall in the area; and Guido Rodríguez pushed his marker before scoring with a header.

If we analyze each of the controversies, we can understand that the wrong one this time is Lionel Messi. However, he did not have a generally comfortable night, as the rivals were very aggressive towards him. In fact, he could even have been injured, given the severity of the infractions he was receiving.
