4 weeks ago

Leo Messi will not play in today game against Bolivia.

The World Cup 2014 runner-ups won with Chile last week which secured them the 5th place in the elimination group. The only goal was scored by the FC Barcelona superstar who had successfully executed the penalty kick.

Today Argentines will play in another match, this time against Bolivia as an away side. The last game between those two teams ended as a 1-1 draw and it was noticeable as Messi vomited on the pitch back then.

The 29-year-old will not help his teammates today. FIFA has started an investigation on his behavior during the game against Chile. The striker has offended linesman Marcelo Van Gasse. Argentinean did not shake his hand and yelled 'f**k off' towards him, insulting his mother as well.

Messi has been fined 10,000 Swiss francs (£8,100) and will also miss World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay, Venezuela and Peru before returning for the final match against Ecuador.
