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).

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Meaningless,pointless, injury creating, form destroying and career limiting International football is imposing severe harm to our best players and the clubs and fans who pay their salaries.. International “managers” have no long term invesatment in the health and well-being of the players whom they put at risk and often hurt or even destroy. Jingoistic”national call ups” should be limited to players 30 years of age or older. Our young players need to understand that being called to play for their National team is not a “great honour”. It is a great risk to what can be a lucrative but time limited career, The “National team” has nothing to do with national pride or patriotism. It’s sole purpose is to fill the coffers of parasitic football associations. A “plus 30” type tournament could accomplish this end and also extend the playing careers of older players. As it stands now; it is farceable abuse of both players and fans. Demand change.
