Argentina captain Lionel Messi lost his cool in the 3-0 defeat against Croatia in their second Group D match in the World Cup.
Messi is considered a relatively calm player and hardly shows his other side both on and off the pitch but he was unable to hide his emotions when things refused to go his way against the Blazers.
The Barcelona forward could not bear it in the 73rd minute when clashed with Croatia player Ivan Strinic when the AC Milan defender fouled him.

Messi didn’t take it lightly as he retaliated on the challenge, he pushed the defender to show his displeasure in the tackle.
Messi and his team are on the brink of exit in the World Cup after the failure to claim a win in two games, the Albiceleste drew their opening match against Iceland and lost against Croatia.
The World Cup is the only title missing in Messi’s gallery and with Argentina performance in their last two matches, it doesn’t look like they will go far in the tournament.
