Messi’s suspension lifted by FIFA

Lionel Messi is free to represent Argentina in their World Cup qualifiers after his four-match international ban was overturned on appeal

FIFA has lifted a four-match suspension on Argentina forward Lionel Messi, world football’s ruling body said on Friday.

Messi, 29, was banned for insulting an assistant referee during a World Cup qualifier against Chile in March

FIFA’s appeal committee described Messi’s behaviour as “reproachable” but decided the evidence against him was insufficient.
