According to Daily Nation,Argentina star Lionel Messi was hit with a one-game suspension by South American football bosses over his dismissal during the Copa America third-place play-off against Chile earlier this month. However, CONMEBOL made no mention of Messi's "corruption" accusation against the regional governing body that he made after receiving his red card. Messi was harshly dismissed in the first half of Argentina's 2-1 win over Chile after a clash with defender Gary Medel.Television images suggested Messi did nothing wrong as Medel appeared to repeatedly try, unsuccessfully, to headbutt the Barcelona forward. While most observers acknowledged that the Chile captain deserved to be sent off, Paraguayan referee Mario Diaz de Vivar controversially also gave Messi his marching orders.
