Martinez also had words with a rival

Tensions flared a number of times on the pitch, with the main bust-up coming after Leandro Paredes booted the ball into the Dutch dugout.

Ex-Burnley ace Weghorst then climbed off the bench for Louis van Gaal and scored a dramatic late brace to force the game to extra-time.

But two-time winners Argentina got the job done in the end.

Words were exchanged at full-time with Inter Milan ace Denzel Dumfries receiving a second yellow card and Argentina captain Messi reminded Dutch boss Van Gaal of his pre-match disrespect.

Messi – picked up a goal, an assist and Man of the Match – also exchanged words with 6ft6 Weghorst in a post-match interview.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, standing at 5ft7, told the Dutch giant: “Who are you looking at? Go ahead you stupid.”

Argentina’s goalkeeping hero Emiliano Martinez was also at the middle of rising tensions at full-time.

Martinez, who saved two spot-kicks, was caught on camera yelling abuse at a Dutch opponent after the win.

The shirtless Aston Villa ace yelled: “Keep your mouth shut you f***ing t***! I f***ed you twice!”

Argentina will now face World Cup 2018 finalists Croatia for a spot in the December 18 finale.

South American rivals Brazil crashed out to Croatia in a dramatic penalty shootout, with star man Neymar being too late to take a penalty.
