Tottenham Hotspur’s Cristiano Romero ‘fed up’ with injury woes after poor FIFA World Cup debut

According to the Independent, Tottenham Hotspur star Cristian Romero is meant to be ‘fed up’ with his injury woes that could cost him his dream of making his 2022 FIFA World Cup journey one to remember.

Romero played 59 minutes for La Albiceleste in their 2-1 loss against Saudi Arabia in their opening group-stage match. He was replaced by Lisandro Martinez shortly after the opponents took the lead.

The Middle Eastern country’s first goal came three minutes after the second half began, with Saleh Alshehri’s shot going past a diving Romero in the box.

Romero and his teammates did not cover themselves in glory for Salem Aldawsari’s 53rd-minute winner which came after the Argentines struggled to clear the ball to safety.

Romero’s injury issues

The former Juventus defender looked a bit nervy on the ball and wasn’t playing his best football, but he was arguably not as bad as some believe his performance was.

Much of his poor World Cup debut could be marked down to his injury issues before it. He came into the game having missed six games across competitions for us with an injury.

Before his hip injury, he had adductor problems earlier this campaign. He is fit and playing now, which is all that is needed for him to make this World Cup a memorable one for himself.

He was removed from Argentina’s line-up for the second group-stage game against Mexico but came on in the 68th minute as the extra defender. It remains to be seen if he is trusted once again by manager Lionel Scaloni in an important game when Argentina play Poland on 30 November.
