Giovani Lo Celso has taken to social media to confirm that he will not join up with the Argentina squad as he is currently nursing a muscle injury.
The midfielder was called up to Argentina’s squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Ecuador but it was revealed on Tuesday that he had pulled out.
The 23-year-old is not the only Tottenham player who has pulled out from their international commitment citing injury concerns.
Steven Bergwijn has also withdrawn from the Netherlands squad for their upcoming Nations League matches against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Italy, while Japhet Tanganga opted out of the England Under-21 squad for their Euro qualifiers against Andorra and Turkey (Evening Standard).
Son Heung-min will also be spending the international break at Hotspur Way after South Korea’s World Cup qualifiers against Turkmenistan and Sri Lanka were postponed.
Tanguy Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko have also not been called up by Didier Deschamps this time around.
Lo Celso confirmed that he had suffered a muscle injury but did not reveal how severe the injury is.
He tweeted: “As is known, a muscle injury did not allow me to be with the group. Thanks for the messages of support. Let’s go, Argentina.”
