Key Tottenham star withdraws from international duty with injury

According to an injury update issued by the Argentine Football Association (AFA) (h/t Evening Standard), Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso has withdrawn from the Argentina squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers due to injury.

The 24-year-old suffered a thigh injury during training at Tottenham and, as a result, was unable to take part in a national team session on Monday. He has now been sent back to the club for further assessment. (h/t Evening Standard)

The thigh injury was the reason why Lo Celso wasn’t involved in Spurs’ 6-1 demolition of Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening. Hopefully, the 24-year-old is able to recuperate properly now that he will not be involved with Argentina before club football resumes.

Lo Celso joined Tottenham last summer from Real Betis, initially on loan, before making the transfer permanent in January. After a slow start, he has gradually developed into a key player for the club under Jose Mourinho.

So far this season, the Argentine international has featured five times in all competitions, scoring two goals. (h/t Transfermarkt)

Lo Celso isn’t the only player to have withdrawn from national team duty, with Japhet Tangagna also missing out after being called up to the England U21 side. Steven Bergwijn, too, pulled out from the Netherlands squad with a fitness issue.

Hopefully, the players are able to recover completely before Premier League action returns. Tottenham face off against West Ham United in the first game after the international break.
