Blow for Spurs as 23-year-old first-team ace suffers injury on international duty

Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero picks up an injury for Argentina against Brazil

According to the reliable journalist, Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Tottenham Hotspur starlet Cristian Romero has injured himself while on international duty for Argentina. He picked up the injury in their latest FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifier against Brazil.

The scoreline ended in a 0-0 on the day but with both sides making their way to the 2022 World Cup that will take place in Qatar. Many of the Tottenham players such as Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane also had an amazing time during the international break.

Antonio Conte was handed a big blow as Romero had to come off injured against the Selecao. The 23-year-old is suspected to have sustained an injury to the left thigh. The Argentine international was starting to cement his place in the backline with the Lilywhites and the supporters will be hoping that the injury doesn’t rule him out for a long time.

The Italian manager took over the North London club recently after Nuno Espirito Santo was unceremoniously sacked after just a few months with the club. Spurs have endured a rocky start to the season but all of that seems to be behind them at the moment.

A key piece of the puzzle!

Conte prefers to play with a three at the back which helps his teams get on the front foot in matches. The loss of an exciting defender like Romero could give him a new headache to choose a suitable defensive partnership in his next game.

The 23-year-old is in fact used to a three-man defence having been deployed in a similar system at Atalanta. Losing a player already familiar with the system he wants to deploy is a big boost for Conte.

The former Italian manager may have to look wisely deliberate on his other options being Japhet Tanganga, Davison Sanches. Ben Davies who scored his first international goal for Wales also has some experience of playing in the back three.

The 52-year-old manager is still relatively young in his tenure as a manager at Spurs. He would be looking to find out the system and group of players that works best for him.

The international break saw favourable results for most players of his squad and he would be hoping that they can carry that confidence at the club level too. The Argentinian defender’s absence would be a big miss as the full extent of the injury and the timeline for its recovery is yet to be revealed.
