Tottenham Hotspur star Cristian Romero unable to join national team due to visa issues

According to TyC Sports (h/t Mirror), Cristian Romero and Lisandro Martinez have found themselves stranded in the UK due to a visa issue and are unable to join the Argentinian national team ahead of the international friendlies this week.

It has emerged that the issues are to do with the queen’s death. The mourning period has meant that Us Embassy in England has been closed which in turn meant that the duo could not travel to North America for their matches.

Argentina are set to face their last two matches before the World Cup against Honduras and Jamaica and will be looking to build up steam before the marquee event kicks off when they take on Saudi Arabia in the opening match.

Cristian Romero is one of the most important players in the Argentinian national team. The Spurs defender has formed a formidable partnership with Benfica centre-back Nicolas Otamendi and is set to be the first choice in the World Cup.

Romero joined the Lilywhites from Atlanta initially on loan at the beginning of last season and eventually on a permanent deal. He has been one of Spurs’ best players in the past couple of campaigns at least when fit.

However, the problem with the Argentinian centre-back is actually staying fit. He is extremely injury-prone and tends to spend a lot of time on the sidelines. This has been a constant feature of the centre-back’s time at the club.

In a way, Tottenham will be happy that Romero has not made the trip to Miami. For a player who is as injury prone as the defender is, Conte will be glad that the player manages to come out of the international break unscathed.

It remains to be seen how Romero’s situation goes about with the national team. Let’s see if the visa issue is sorted or if the Argentinian will remain in the United Kingdom for the international break.
