Although FIFA is yet to officially announce its verdict on Messi, it is highly likely that the Argentina captain will simply get away with a warning. However, there is still a possibility that the superstar may receive a match ban.

Following heavy criticism of the Argentine team, FIFA decided to take disciplinary action against the Argentine Football Association and the players concerned. And so, there is a big risk that if Messi is found guilty, he could be ruled out of the semi-final against Croatia.This will be a bad thing to Messi.

Against Argentina, FIFA has opened its own investigation over violations of Articles 12 and 16 which deal with misconduct of players and officials and order and security at matches, respectively. Against the Dutch Football Association, a breather on Article 12 has been invoked.

What Messi said?

I don’t want to talk about the referee because then they will punish you, but we were scared before the game because we knew what was coming. I can’t say what I think, but FIFA will have to look into it. Fifa can’t put a referee like that on this game when it’s not up to the mark.

The quarter final clash between Netherlands vs Argentina was a grueling match between two heavyweights. Discipline was a major issue in the game as players and coaching staff of both the teams were seen losing their temper. This prompted referee Antonio Mateu Lahoj to show him a total of 16 yellow cards.

In addition to verbal spats, players from both sides often clashed with each other as brawls broke out during and after games. Such was the severity of the brawl that Denzel Dumfries of the Netherlands received two yellow cards and was sent off after the penalty shootout. After the game, referee Antonio Mateu Lahoj was criticized by Lionel Messi and Argentine goalkeeper Emi Martínez.
