FIFA has rescinded the four match ban handed to Argentina star Lionel Messi for disrespecting a match official.

Messi reportedly hurled "insulting words" at an assistant referee during a 1-0 win over Chile in March. The decision was appealed against.

A Fifa appeal committee on Friday said while his behaviour was "reproachable", the evidence was not sufficient.

He will now be available for matches against Uruguay, Venezuela and Peru as Argentina fight to secure a place at next summer's World Cup finals in Russia.

A fine of 10,000 Swiss francs (£7,800) was also lifted.
