After Argentina’s close 1-0 win against Peru in World Cup qualifying, Lionel Messi took aim at the weather and referee Wilton Sampaio, stating that the Brazilian match official makes contentious calls “on purpose.”
Inter forward Lautaro Martinez’s one goal was enough to give the Albiceleste three more points on their way to Qatar 2022.
Six-time Winner of the Ballon d’Or Messi had a bad night, struggling to make an impression, and the 34-year-old afterwards claimed that the trying conditions and those in charge worked against him.
Messi posted on Instagram: “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 referees us, as if he does it on purpose. But well, three important points and we’re close to our objective.”
