Video: These fans accuse Lionel Messi of DIVING in Argentina win over Brazil

Posted by

Argentina secured a 1-0 win over Brazil in Saudi Arabia on Friday, with Lionel Messi scoring the winning goal to help win the showdown between the two old rivals.

The Barcelona legend won the penalty himself before seeing his spot kick saved by Alisson, only to be on hand to score the rebound in the 13th minute.

That was all that split the two sides, but there are seemingly some fans of the game who were less than impressed with the 32-year-old over the way in which he won the penalty.

As seen in the tweets below, some accused the Argentina international of diving to win the penalty, as they included a video of a different angle of the incident on the replay to show that Alex Sandro was perhaps hard done by.

Nevertheless, the decision was made in favour of Messi who went on to score the winning goal, and that is ultimately all that will matter to him moving forward as he made his comeback at international level and helped secure a victory over Brazil.
