Leo Messi vomits on the field again during Argentina friendly

Argentina played out a goalless draw with Romania in Bucharest on Wednesday, with Leo Messi unable to find the net because he was marked out of the game by a resilient home side.

The match didn't get off to a great start for the Barcelona star, as he was seen doubling over and throwing up after just seven minutes of play.

The Albiceleste captain powered through and played the full 90 minutes, but this is by no means the first time he has struggled to keep his dinner down on the field.

El Pulga yacked up during the 2011 Spanish Super Cup against Real Madrid, he blew chunks during a high-altitude clash with Bolivia in March 2013 and he dry heaved like he had just seen Arsene Wenger in lingerie during a game with Levante last August.

At this rate, the World Cup in Brazil is going to need more sawdust than Disney World.
