Argentina captain Lionel Messi has been banned from international football for three months.

The world’s best player was banned after claiming the Copa America was “corrupt”.

Last month, the Argentinian forward was sent off in Argentina’s 2-1 third-place play-off win over Chile.

After the game, he said that the “cup was fixed for Brazil”.

He has also been fined $60,000 the South American Football Confederation.

Messi has seven days to appeal the decision to suspend him. The ban means Messi will miss Argentina’s upcoming friendlies against Chile, Mexico and Germany in September and October.

  1. Wow! That’s really weird. His team must be pretty annoyed because he is a really good player.
