Messi Responds Angrily To Brazil vs Argentina Drama

What an angry Lionel Messi told the health officials who rushed on to the field to detain four players during Brazil and Argentina's 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Sunday night has reportedly been revealed.

The two South American giants met in an official World Cup qualifier on Sunday night in Brazil, but the game was cut drastically short after health officials, accompanied by police, entered the field in an attempt to locate four players.

Reports suggest that Premier League-based stars Emiliano Buendia, Emiliano Martinez, Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero had hidden the fact that they had recently been in England, which would have forced them to quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival in Brazil, per the South American country's coronavirus protocols.

Amid the chaos that ensued once the health officials and policemen intervened, Argentina players were believed to be furious, including captain Messi, whose response has now seemingly been revealed.

The 34-year-old Paris Saint-Germain forward, as per what has been reported, appeared heavily confused that authorities had not acted earlier given how serious they made the situation out to be, before instructing his colleagues to leave the field.

"We've been here for three days, we were waiting to play the match, why didn't you come earlier?" he said, according to RMC Sport.

Before adding: "This is a mess, we're off."

According to HITC, England is a red-listed country in the South America nation, leading to fears ahead of the match that it would not get underway.

The game was eventually abandoned, with Tite's Brazil later enjoying a training session out on the field.
