Messi international ban lifted ...

Fri May 05, 2017 2:53 pm

You will recall that the argentine was banned in his home country while playing for world cup qualifying match against chile at home. Messi received four match international ban after a confrontation with the assistant referee. Messi was involved with a heated argument with the assistant referee in a game that they won.
The ban was seen by the authorities as directing insulting words to the assistant referee. “It was insulting words” quoted one of the authorities after the encounter.
However, the 29 years old Argentine disagreed with the charge and filed an appeal.
But as can be the case in matters like this, the wheels of justice took some time to turn around in the favour of the argentine player.
So far, the argentine have served one match ban against the four on their game against Bolivia, a match which their country lost 2:1 before there was a broadcast today that the four match ban had been lifted by the appeal committee.
The official statement coming from the appeal committee being that the argentine behaviour was 'reproachable` the evidence that led to the four-game ban being imposed was not sufficient based on what transpired in the pitch.
The Barcelona star player will be delighted on the judgement as he will now be free to play the remaining world cup qualifier.
The Argentine football federation will also be hoping that the return of Messi to the team will boost their chances of qualifying for next year’s world cup scheduled to hold in Russia.
What do you think about this news ?
