Argentina was fined because of Messi's incident

One of the controversies of the first fixture of Copa America was the situation that Leo Messi lived at the end of the first match.

The star of the Argentinian team was named MVP of the match that faced Argentina vs Paraguai which ended in a draw to 2.

Problems came when Messi didn't accept the prize and Nelson Valdez of Paraguai received the award.

Regarding this fact the AFA, Football Association of Argentina, had to pay a fine of 44 thousand euros.

 

The situation was repeated after the match that faced Argentina and Uruguay (1-0). Messi received the award again but this time the end was different and he accepted the award as most valuable player of the match.
