''SICKY SICKY MESSI'' BARCELONA STAR FALLS ILL AND VOMITS AS ARGENTINA ARE HELD TO A GOALLESS DRAW BY ROMANIA

Unwell: Lionel Messi was physically sick on the pitch during Argentina's draw against Romania

It was a sick evening for Lionel Messi as he vomited in the international friendly between Argentina and host, Romania which ended in a goalless draw in Bucharest

Messi was unable to unlock a stubborn Romania defence on a frustrating night and his exertions in trying to break through appeared to take its toll, as Messi fell ill during the first half.

The Barcelona superstar made a slow start to the match and vomited briefly on the field in the seventh minute, shortly after taking a free kick.

After the game Messi played down his on-pitch illness: 'My vomiting has always happened,' he said. 'It happened a few times with Barça. It's nothing to me.'
In the spotlight: An irresponsible member of the crowd used a laser pointer to shine a light on Messi

There was even more discomfort for Messi as he was targeted by a member of the crowd at the National Arena with a laser pointer.

Argentina were clearly the technically superior side and kept up the pressure throughout a game watched by 47,000 people on a wet evening at the National Arena in Bucharest, but were unable to notch the match-winning goal
