The draw with Colombia for the South American Qualifiers left, at least, a couple of concerns for the Argentine National Team in the face of the start of the Copa América, not only because of the blow suffered by Emiliano Martínez, but also because Cristian Romero was also touched.
Cuti, who had a great debut with the Albiceleste National Team and seems to have already won the position, had to be replaced 64 minutes into the match in Barranquilla due to a muscle problem. This Wednesday, when they arrive in the country – on a flight that has already been delayed – they will be subjected to studies to determine whether or not there is an injury. But, for now, his presence in the debut against Chile for the Copa América appears in doubt.
On Tuesday, Romero was replaced by Germán Pezzella and against Chile, Lucas Martínez Quarta played in the rear although without a performance, as alternatives if the Atalanta defender is not available.
Juan Balbi confided in SportsCenter AM that, even if he has a tear, Lionel Scaloni will take Romero to Brazil. On Thursday he must confirm the final list for the Copa América, for which Lucas Alario has already suffered the loss and they are very aware of the tests to Franco Armani, who continued to test positive for Covid and thus cannot leave the country.
In the case ofdra Martínez, in Colombia they carried out studies and it was only a strong blow and a scare, but he is fine and they will be able to count on him.
