Argentina beat Nigeria 3-2 with a brace from Lionel Messi to finish out the group stage with a third straight win. Ezequiel Lavezzi apparently felt Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella needed to cool off in the midst of this good start to the tournament, though.

In the 71st minute, as Sabella gave instructions to Lavezzi, who came on in the first half for an injured Kun Aguero, the PSG attacker casually squirted his water bottle in the manager's face. Sabella flinched and stepped back, but carried on with his instructions like a pro.

Either Lavezzi and Sabella have a similar sense of humor or this is a show of insubordination that you would expect from a guy with a Maradona tattoo on his midsection.
