FIFA overturned the decision of banning Leo Messi with 4 international matches this Friday. The defence by the Argentinian Football Federation in front of the appeal committee has been a success. Messi was banned after the words he told the referee in the Argentina match against Chile.

The committee said Messi's attitude wasn't good but that they can't ban him because "there isn't enough evidence to think Messi insulted the referees". 

Messi already missed the game after the Chile one due to the ban, so he will be avaiable for the other three. FIFA also overturned the economical fine of 10.000 francs.
