Argentina captain Lionel Messi is expected to face suspension for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Bolivia after being reported for a foul - mouthed outburst.
Messi scored the only goal of Thursday's 1 - 0 win over Chile, hitting from the spot after referee Sandro Ricci gave a dubious penalty for a push on Angel Di Maria.
But the Barcelona star was enraged by linesman Marcelo Van Gasse in the second half, allegedly verbally abusing the official.
And while the incident was not included in the officials' original report, it was added on Monday and sent to Conmebol.
The governing body's disciplinary committee will now have to decide what punishment to hand down to Messi and, more importantly, when it should come into effect.
The Argentine Football Association (AFA) is aware of the possible sanctions and accept that their skipper should not be treated differently from any other player, regardless of his standing in world football.
AFA vice - president Armando Perez told La Tercera: "If he behaved out of place, then he should be penalized like any other player. "
