Lionel Messi Is Stuck in Doping Control During Argentina Celebration

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJuly 9, 2014

Lionel Messi happily would have been in the changing room celebrating with his team-mates after Argentina clinched their spot in the World Cup final. 

But he was stuck taking his mandatory doping test in the aftermath. 

He posted a picture of himself on Instagram awaiting his test (translated by 101 Great Goals): 

I've been called for doping control and I can't be enjoying the moment in the dressing room. 

I feel proud to be part of this team! Phenomenons every one of them! What a game they had. This is crazy. We're in the final! Let's enjoy this, a hug to all of Argentina, we have just one step left. 

[Leo Messi]
