There is no end to Argentina’s fans’ excitement after reaching the semi-finals in dramatic fashion. The Blue-Blues dream of defeating Croatia in the top four and reaching the finals. But even reaching the semifinals, Messi is not happy. His anger with the referee is not resolved.

At the end of the match, Messi washed the referee. He said, “I don’t want to say anything, if I do, I will be punished.” But in my opinion, such a referee should not be given responsibility in such matches by FIFA. He does not deserve it.

Spanish referee Antonio Mateu showed 19 cards in this quarter-final match. Argentina players have seen 9 yellow cards. Netherlands players saw 7 yellow cards and one red card. Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni and support staff Walter Samuel also saw the card. Messi himself saw Lahoz’s yellow card.

Montil received a yellow card in the group stage match against Mexico. And Acuna saw a yellow card against Poland. However, Messi, the lifeblood of the team, will be able to play against Croatia after showing a yellow card for the first time.
