It was bullsh*t!' - Messi accuses referees of favouring Brazil in Argentina's Copa America semi-final defeat


The Albiceleste once again fell short and their superstar player appears to have laid some of the blame on officials
 
Lionel Messi has accused the referees of favouring Brazil as Argentina crashed out of the Copa America with a 2-0 defeat in the semi-final in Belo Horizonte.
The Barcelona star again failed to have a decisive impact in the match for his nation as the hosts took the most of their opportunities with goals to Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino in either half sealing a place in the final against either Chile or Peru.
But Messi was scathing of the performance from the Video Assistant Referee and match official Roddy Zambrano , using a post-match interview to criticise the decision to not award a penalty to Sergio Aguero just prior to Firmino's 71st minute strike.
