Portugal player BIZARRELY blames Messi for World Cup exit

Posted by

Portugal centre-back Pepe has fired blame at Lionel Messi after his side’s shock World Cup exit. 

Portugal was eliminated from the tournament after a surprising 1-0 loss at the hands of Morocco yesterday afternoon. Youssef En-Nesyri scored the only goal of the game with a towering header just before half-time. They were able to hold on for the rest of the game, making history as the only African side ever to get to a World Cup semi-final

It was a devastating loss for Portugal, especially for Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe who will never play in the tournament again.

The veteran centre-back bizarrely blamed his old foe, Messi, for their exit.

“It’s inadmissible that an Argentine referee was in charge today after what happened yesterday, with Messi complaining. After what I saw today, they can give the title to Argentina now.” he said in his post-match interview.

Is their an agenda against Portugal or his Pepe just out of his mind?
