(Video) Barcelona Star Lionel Messi Vomits On Pitch During Argentina Game

FC Barcelona forward Lionel Messi threw up on the pitch during Argentina’s friendly match against Romania in midweek. Watch the video here:

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi threw up early in Argentina’s international friendly game against Romania.

It is not definitively known what caused the 26 year-old to double over and expel the contents of his stomach after just seven minutes of his country’s 0-0 draw in Bucharest, but Messi appeared unflustered by the incident.

“It’s no big deal; it’s happened to me before”, the Barca ace told Marca after the game.

“Sometimes I accelerate very fast and the change in air intake that involves causes me to heave. I felt completely fine at the end of the match”, the forward added.

Real Madrid and France legend Zinedine Zidane famously threw up on the pitch prior to taking a penalty (which he then scored) against England at UEFA Euro 2004, while Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro Raniere has also been known to chunder everywhere mid-match.
