Bad news has been received by the Argentina National Team led by Lionel Scaloni in the face of the triple date that the national team will have for South American Qualifiers towards the Qatar 2022 World Cup, with commitments against Venezuela, Brazil and Bolivia.
It is that the DT will not be able to count on the four players that he had summoned belonging to Premier League clubs, due to the decision that these institutions have taken jointly not to cede their players to countries in the “red zone” of COVID-19: the archer Emiliano Martinez and the attacking midfielder Emiliano Buendía (Aston Villa), the defender “Cuti” Romero and the creative Giovani lo celso (Tottenham) will not be able to be present.
“Premier League clubs have decided today reluctantly but unanimously not to release players for international matches played in red list countries next month.“, reads part of the official statement, published minutes ago by the official Twitter of the competition.
“The clubs’ decision, which is strongly supported by the Premier League, will apply to nearly 60 players from 19 Premier League clubs who will travel to 26 red-list countries in the September international window,” continues the mentioned statement. Who will Scaloni call?
