The last time Tottenham sent one of their Argentinian contingent away on international duty to play a friendly for his country, he came back injured.
Giovani Lo Celso still hasn’t returned from the hip injury he picked up during the last international break, and Spurs fans could be forgiven for being apprehensive about Foyth’s inclusion this time around.
The young central defender has yet to play a single minute for Tottenham in any competition after suffering an injury in pre-season.
Despite this, the Argentine was included in the latest senior international squad and even started the friendly match against Germany. Not only this, but Foyth played all 90 minutes.
Handing the Spurs man a full match against the Germans seems a bit much as his first game of the season, but how did he get on at right-back?
With Spurs left wanting in that position, they could really do with Foyth taking to the new spot like a duck to water.
Sky Sports rated Foyth at 6/10 for his performance last night.
90Min only rated Foyth at 5/10.
Spurs Web Opinion:
It appears to me that Pochettino doesn’t have one stand out choice to be his first-choice right-back. It’s more about muddling through to January when he can finally buy a new player.
