Anger and disappointment of Paraguay players were obvious. This is also the main reason why Gomez was sent off, as he started to scuffle with Venezuela’s player.
It wasn’t anything horrible, but referee still deemed this too much for both players, and both players had to leave the pitch.
Paraguay and Chile were the big losers on the night, as Argentina along with Messi’s three goals managed to avoid upset.
