A key day for the Argentine National Team to start defining its team to face Colombia, next Tuesday for the South American Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, because it has already recovered some players who had physical problems and this Saturday they will know the results of the swabs for COVID-19.
There were seven footballers who did not even travel to Santiago del Estero due to different conditions. Diego Monroig detailed in SportsCenter what is the current situation of each.
Nicolás Otamendi, fulfilled the suspension date, and is ready to return to defense as the first center-back and there could be a movement in the rear, with Cuti Romero who would run to the left in place of Lucas Martínez Quarta.
Meanwhile, of those who suffered physical problems, Nicolás González and Giovani Lo Celso are already training alongside the group and, in the case of the Tottenham midfielder, he has a chance of starting in Barranquilla. While they take Joaquín Correa very little by little and he would not be there to play yet.
But the main focus will be on the Covid-19 tests, since Franco Armani and Gonzalo Montiel, who were part of the outbreak in River Plate, have been discharged and train with the squad, but as they continued to test positive, they could not go to Santiago and they will not be able to travel to Colombia, if they do not become negative.
But if they are available, Armani would recover the bow instead of Draw Martínez and Gonzalo Montiel would do the same instead of Juan Foyth.
The case of Sergio Agüero is different, despite the false alarm with his tests. Kun continues to work isolated from the group by protocol, since he arrived on Tuesday from Spain, and if his swab is negative this time, he could go to Barranquilla, because it is a probability that the National Team will go directly from there to Brazil for the America’s Cup. .
