Tottenham Hotspur fans would have been fearing the worst after seeing the horror challenge on Giovani Lo Celso as the midfielder played for Argentina yesterday.
Lo Celso was subjected to a studs-up challenge right down on his ankle from Chile’s Charles Aranguiz in the first half of the match.
The 23-year-old was seen beating the turf in pain after the challenge, and the Argentine was later forced off in the 53rd minute due to the injury.
It certainly didn’t look good on first viewing for Spurs fans, especially considering they are well used to Harry Kane suffering months on the sidelines for similar challenges.
This also comes just after Lo Celso made his first appearances for Spurs against Man City, Newcastle, and Arsenal.
However, Lo Celso himself has now come out and put these worries to rest, insisting that the injury is nothing to worry about and was just a blow (Daily Mail).
