Cristian Romero, the defender who won the title in the Argentine National Team in his first call, is the main doubt for the quarterfinal match of the Copa América against Ecuador, but Lionel Scaloni will wait for his evolution.
The Atalanta player has a small strain in one knee for which he performs differentiated work in kinesiology, but the coaching staff is confident that it will arrive for the next commitment, according to Diego Monroig in SportsCenter AM.
Romero will probably not reach 100 percent by Saturday, but since his physical problem does not appear in the AFA medical reports, it would be less of a problem than the muscle overload he suffered at the start of the tournament.
In the match against Bolivia, Scaloni preferred to give him rest and Gemán Pezzella took his place, but since it is a decisive phase match, although he cannot train with total normality this week, surely, the DT decides to “risk it” on Saturday.
Argentina will face Gustavo Alfaro’s Ecuador, in Goiania, for the quarterfinals of the Copa América.
