Barca Appeals Messi's Fine

FC Barcelona
appealed the fine of 2,000 euros (US$ 2.736) and the yellow card that the Spanish football federation imposed on argentin soccer star Lionel Messi for showing a T-shirt dedicating a goal to his mother.

The Argentine star Barça lifted his shirt and showed a red underneath with the message "Happy Birthday Mom'' on Saturday when he scored a penalty one of the goals in the 3-0 win over Racing Santander in the Spanish league.

The referee showed him a card during the match to the recent winner of the FIFA Golden Ball, but in its final report said that the footballer had done.

The team said Messi's message "is not advertising, nor does it show, but defends the values of family and other social values and positive in the world of football also has to be speaker.''
