Things became messy in here!


Explanation:
Is an expression, as you said and what it means is that things can get confused.

The phrase itself is related to a "soccer game" scene with chaos at the middle field during a game.

Hope it helps!

due to unforeseen circumstances, at a very short moment's (cont. baixo)


Explanation:
and not due to any fault or blame by any of the players of each side, the scene may become unclear and somehow confusing at the center location of the playing football field causing great discomfort and chaos sometimes, in general, however, plenty of misunderstandigs and atriction may arise during the match.
