Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, was shown a straight red card, during their Copa America semi-final win against Chile on Saturday.

The Barcelona superstar had earlier laid on an assist, as they raced into a two-goal lead.

Sergio Aguero and Paulo Dybala found the back of the net, as it appeared that the Albiceleste would run off the defending champions.

However, things changed in the 38th minute, as Messi tussled with Gary Medel for a loose ball.

Mario Diaz de Vivar from Paraguay deemed it to be bad enough and sent off both players.

Arturo Vidal pulled one back for Chile in the second half, as Messi’s team-mates held on for a 2-1 win.

This is the second time Messi will be sent off in his career. The first time was on his Argentina in 2005.

Ronaldo emerges highest-paid footballer ahead of Messi, Neymar ronaldo

Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been named the highest-paid footballer on the planet, in the annual Forbes list published on Friday.

Ronaldo is only second on the list of the best-paid athletes for 2020 behind tennis superstar, Roger Federer.

Federer earned $106.3m (£86.3m) in the last 12 months including $100m (£81.2m) in endorsements.

All that money saw him move up four places and become the first tennis player to top the list.

Ronaldo (£85.3m), Lionel Messi (£84.5m), Neymar Jr. (£77.6m) and American basketball player LeBron James (£71.6m) complete the top five.

“The coronavirus pandemic triggered salary cuts for football stars Messi and Ronaldo, clearing the way for a tennis player to rank as the world’s highest-paid athlete for the first time.

“Roger Federer is the perfect pitchman for companies, resulting in an unparalleled endorsement portfolio of blue-chip brands worth $100m a year for the tennis great,” Kurt Badenhausen, who is a senior editor at Forbes, said.

Japan’s Naomi Osaka (£30.7m), who was ranked 29th on the list, is ahead of another tennis player Serena Williams (£29.5m), as the world’s highest-earning female athlete.

They are the only women on the list.

Tyson Fury gives reason he will knock Anthony Joshua out in 3rd round Joshua 1

British boxer, Tyson Fury, has said that he would knock out fellow countryman, Anthony Joshua, in the 3rd round because the 30-year-old has ‘no footwork’.

Fury also claimed that Joshua has been avoiding to fight him for 5 years.

DAILY POST recalls that Fury and Joshua are both on course for a heavyweight unification fight next year.

Fury knocked out American boxer, Deontay Wilder, in his last fight in Las Vegas last February.

Joshua also defeated Mexican-American boxer, Andy Ruiz Jr, in his last fight in Saudi Arabia last December.

“Anthony Joshua’s style is tailor-made for mine,” Fury told Redknapp’s Home Fixture on Sky Sports.

“He is strong and powerful, but he got no footwork.

“I have been offering to fight Anthony Joshua for the last five years, and it has not happened at all.

“I think I would knock him out in two or three rounds.”
