Messi blame altitude for loss

The stadium in La Paz is like way up in the clouds, Messi blamed the altitude in Bolivia for that memorable 6-1 loss in World Cup qualifying.
"It's impossible to play there.

"Everyone struggled. You sprint a bit and it's difficult to get your breath back and you could see that they were faster. They also played at a very fast rhythm, and they shot from everywhere."
OK Leo. I'll give you 1-2 goals -- which is kind of a stretch -- for the altitude.

That would still make it 4-1 dude. No excuse.
