As if Bolivia goalkeeper Carlos Lampe hadn’t been humiliated enough having let three goals in against Argentina…

…along comes Lionel Messi to do this:

Ouch.

As you’ll have guessed, and can see from the collection of tweets below, fans across the world LOVED it.

But one guy wasn’t so impressed: this spoilsport linesman, who DARED to raise his flag with the outrageous, despicable, insensitive and entirely correct decision that Messi was acutally offside, robbing the world of the chance to see Messi go on to nutmeg all the remaining Bolivia players in the box before backheeling home.

"You! You with the flag! What are you playing at?!?! Put it down at once!"

“You! You with the flag! What are you playing at?!?! Put it down at once!”

Anyway, in what is now time-honoured Web 3.0 fashion, here are the best of the comments from Twitter.

All fine comments. But this last chap probably needs to get out and about a bit more…
