Some fans react to performance of Tottenham star Giovani Lo Celso for Argentina
Tottenham star Giovani Lo Celso was handed the chance to start for Argentina last night in their latest World Cup qualifier.
Lionel Scaloni’s men were forced to settle for a draw, despite racing out of the blocks.
Cristian Romero and Leandro Paredes put Argentina two to the good inside eight minutes.
Luis Fernando Muriel Fruto pulled one back in the 51st minute, with Miguel Borja rescuing a point in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
Lo Celso collected his 21st cap for Argentina last night, playing 54 minutes of the contest.
During 2020/21, the midfielder played 28 times for Tottenham but struggled to hold down a place in the team.
Lo Celso made a permanent move to North London in January 2020, costing £27.2 million.
He has been blighted by injury problems and it yet to truly catch fire in the Premier League.
Lo Celso has 65 games to his name in England and will hope to kick on during 2021/22.
Last night he was largely impressive for Argentina prior to his withdrawal in the second half.
He lined up as part of a 4-3-3 deployed by Scaloni and it was a role which seemed to suit his playmaking style.
Lo Celso must kick on at Tottenham
The Premier League outfit will have a new manager to impress next season and he must grasp the opportunity.
He is yet to get going at Tottenham and he must start to justify the club’s decision to sign him.
The £70,000-a-week player has scored just seven goals and registered four assists and that isn’t enough.
He simply has to start contributing more to the team, otherwise a new manager won’t pick him.
Last night saw him show some signs of promise and supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
Here is what they had to say regarding the performance of Lo Celso.
