'I'm still waiting': Dejan Kulusevski shares what he's watching to see if Tottenham's Cristian Romero will do at the World Cup

Tottenham Hotspur winger Dejan Kulusevski has shared with the club’s official website that he’s watching to see if Cristian Romero will score at the World Cup

Romero is preparing for a huge semi-finals clash with Croatia tonight and has been impressive for Argentina in Qatar. 

The 24-year-old was taken off in the quarter-finals clash with the Netherlands as Lionel Scaloni’s men were 2-0 up. 

Argentina went on to concede two goals without Romero on the pitch but came through the test on penalties in the end. 

Romero may be impressing defensively for La Albiceleste but his club teammate Kulusevski says he’s waiting for him to get amongst the goals in Qatar.

Kulusevski on Romero  

Speaking to Tottenham’s official website, Kulusevski was asked who he thinks will lift the World Cup on Sunday. 

The 22-year-old has predicted that Romero will become a world champion but he’s desperate for the Argentine defender to get on the scoresheet. 

“I like how Morocco play, a lot, look at the game against Portugal,” Kulusevski said. 

“Croatia as well… everyone can win. It’s difficult. Croatia-Argentina, what will happen there? I would like Messi to win. 

“I’m still waiting for Cuti’s goal, as well! If I had to pick one team… Argentina.”

Romero would love to get on the scoresheet tonight as he aims to help Scaloni’s men reach their second World Cup final in the last eight years. 

The former Atalanta man will also face-off against Ivan Perisic and Croatia tonight. It should be an interesting battle between them, with the pair set to play on the same side of the pitch against each other. 

Perisic has been playing in a more advanced role for Croatia on the left wing and Romero will likely play on the right-hand side of Argentina’s back-three. 

Club alliances will undoubtedly be brushed aside later as the pair set their sights on World Cup glory.
