As if Lionel Messi didn't already have enough to deal with...

Argentina advanced to the semi-finals of the Copa America on Friday night after defeating Colombia on penalties following a scoreless 90 minutes. 

It was a physical game, and Messi struggled to break free against the physical Colombian strategy. But Messi also had other distractions: a laser pen. 

Photos emerged in the aftermath of a bright green spot on Messi. 

Oh, and he had other obstacles, too.
