Lionel Messi suspended for four matches by FIFA after having “insulted an assistant referee". While the referee Sandro Ricci said "I didn't hear any offensive language from Messi apart from the usual complaints. Had I felt something, I'd have sanctioned him." FIFA started to invastigate that case on their own without any ask from referees.

According to videos Lionel Messi said "la concha de tu madre", which is very common Argentinian swear world and is used by many players during every single game around the world.

According to FIFA the player and the Argentinian Football Association have been informed of the decision. The statement was published 6 hours before the game and AFA denied that they or Leo Messi received any information from FIFA.
