Argentina squad announce media boycott

Argentina Media Boycott

Argentina’s Captain Lionel Messi declared after their 3-0 victory over Colombia on Tuesday night that the Argentine players would no longer be speaking to the press.
The team have been subject to recent criticism over a loss of form and poor results, but their decision to sever ties with the media was sparked by a radio report which alleged Ezequiel Lavezzi had smoked marijuana after a training session.
