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 debut in 2005.
