Lionel Messi and a 2nd red card in his career
The Barcelona forward assisted Sergio Aguero’s opener before Paulo Dybala made it 2-0.
But Messi was shown a red following a clash with Gary Medel, which also saw the Chile player dismissed.
Arturo Vidal scored a second-half penalty but Argentina held off the fightback to secure third place.
However, the big talking point was undoubtedly the sendings off of Medel and Messi – who has never been sent off for Barcelona, and whose only another red card was on his international debut 14 years ago.
