Messi gets WC qualifier ban for Copa red card

Lionel Messi doesn't feel he should've seen red for the Gary Medel altercation and feels Argentina should've been in the Copa America final.

Argentina captain Lionel Messi has received a one-game suspension from World Cup qualifying after a controversial red card at this summer's Copa America in Brazil.

The top six-ranked teams in the FIFA rankings after the June 2020 international window will automatically be included in the home-and-away Hexagonal. The top three will qualify for Qatar 2022.

Gold Cup winner Mexico is currently a long way ahead of those outside the top six, meaning it's virtually inconceivable that...
