The Argentine Football Association has complained to South American football’s governing body over the “serious and gross refereeing errors” in their Copa America semi-final defeat by Brazil.

Tournament hosts Brazil made the final with a 2-0 win in Belo Horizonte.

The official complaint to Conmebol follows Lionel Messi’s claims of “crazy officiating”.

The Argentine FA also accuses Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro of making a “clear political demonstration”.

AFA president Claudio Tapia sent a six-page letter to Conmebol in support of the team and captain Messi, who was particularly aggrieved his side were not awarded a penalty by Ecuadorian referee Roddy Zambrano before Brazil’s second goal.

Speaking after the defeat, Barcelona forward Messi said:

“The officiating was crazy. There were clear penalties, on [Nicolas] Otamendi, on Kun [Sergio Aguero].

“[The referee] was on their side. In every divided ball or dispute, he went their way.”
