In the early morning of October 14, Argentina defeated Bolivia 2-1 in a reversal and successfully won two consecutive world preliminaries.
After the game, conflict broke out between the two sides, and Messi had a dispute with the opposing coaching staff. It is reported that there was an unhappiness between Bolivian physical coach Navas and Messi at that time. Messi turned his head and burst out swearing: "Why are you bald? What the hell, you don't have to bother me with XX!"
