Argentina captain Lionel Messi also expressed dissatisfaction with the referee team led by Rody Zambrano – Ecuadorian.

Messi thinks there are too many fouls but VAR has never been used at all throughout the match despite being applied in all previous Copa America matches. Argentine Labor President Claudio Tapia sent a letter to comfort and support Messi’s opinion in the post-match interview. Mr. Tapia also expressed clearly in the complaint letter to CONMBEBOL that:

“It is unreasonable to not use VAR in two situations and it has affected the game.”

He also expressed “doubts about morality, honesty and transparency” during the last defeat of Argentina.

Specifically, Mr. Jair Bolsonaro – Brazil’s new national president had a welcome screen for fans in the middle of the time even though FIFA had stipulated political factors are not allowed to interfere in football matches.
