    ‘Disgraceful!’ - Lionel Messi penalty decision in Poland-Argentina World Cup clash slammed as ‘outrageous’

    The decision to award Argentina and Lionel Messi a penalty in the first half of their crucial World Cup showdown with Poland has been slammed by pundits and fans alike. Lionel Scaloni’s side headed into Wednesday night’s Group C decider at Stadium 974 in Doha needing a win to make sure of their place in the last 16 having rebounded from that historic upset by Saudi Arabia to defeat Mexico on Saturday night. After a leaping Messi had headed a difficult cross well wide at the back post, Juventus’ Szczesny brushed the face of the Paris Saint-Germain superstar with his glove.
