Mingueza and Ceballos have to retire due to physical problems
The selection of Luis de la Fuente has started his participation in the football tournament of the Olympic Games in Tokyo with a bad foot. In 45 minutes, in his debut in this meeting against Egypt, he suffered two injuries. On the one hand, Mingueza, with muscular problems. On the other, Dani Ceballos, who received a stomp on his left ankle, which forced him to leave the pitch limping. What a bad luck!
Mingueza had already given a scare. A rival, Fetouh, had made a somewhat bawdy tackle on him. His ankle ached. But it continued. Shortly after, in a North African counter, he ran to clear the ball, touching the back of his left thigh. Muscle issue. Change. In his place, Vallejo entered. A priori, the right back of Barcelona will miss the tournament.
Meanwhile, Ceballos, one of the team’s beacons, engine room game vision and imagination, took another hit from an opponent. Ther Mohamed stepped on him. Pain in the left ankle. The referee viewed the VAR, in case the infraction was red. But not. It was yellow. And the Andalusian left the field limping. He also has doubts about whether he will play in Japan again. Instead of Ceballos, author of a shot to the post, La Rojita’s best chance, Moncayola entered.
