Wojciech Szczęsny says he’ll “probably be banned” after in-game bet with Lionel Messi

Poland secured a place in the last 16 of the World Cup despite suffering a 2-0 defeat against Argentina in Qatar. Poland goalkeeper Szczesny revealed after the full-time whistle that he had lost a bet with Messi after the penalty was awarded and did not intend to pay up.
“We spoke before the penalty, I told him I can bet him €100 that he wasn’t going to give it. So I’ve lost a bet against Messi,” he said in the post-match mixed zone.
He further joked: “I don’t know if that’s allowed at the World Cup. I’m probably going to get banned for it. I don’t care right now.
“I’m not going to pay him either. He doesn’t care about €100, come on.”
