The players of Argentina and Uruguay starred in a hot moment during the first half played in the Bombonera, for the fifth date of the South American Qualifiers heading to the 2026 World Cup that will be played in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
The 18th minute of the first half was played and the score was tied 0-0. At that moment, the ball had gone out of the side and there was a cross between defender Cuti Romero and Uruguayan striker Maximiliano Araujo. From there, tension broke out, which included pushing and shoving between both teams.
Far from subsiding, the hot weather grew and generated more discussions. One of them had the Argentine captain, Lionel Messi, face to face with the Uruguayan full-back Mathías Olivera. While this conflict was happening, Colombian referee Wilmar Roldán tried to control the situation, although he did not show any card.
