The Netherlands came from two goals down to force extra time and penalties in the quarter-final, with clashes continuing between the teams following the shootout.

Lionel Messi was among a World Cup record 17 players or coaching staff members to be shown a yellow card by the Spanish referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz in the quarter-final.

Both Argentina and the Netherlands have been hit by a separate charge for picking up more than five yellow cards during the match.

Argentina, who play Croatia in the semi-finals, will likely be hit with a heavier fine by FIfa’s disciplinary panel for the separate disorder charge.
