Romero gearing up for the World Cup

Romero is on a hugely impressive run of clean sheets at international level for Argentina, which comes at the ideal time before the World Cup.

Romero played the full game last time out as Jamaica were beaten 3-0 in a friendly to round off the most recent international break before the tournament in Qatar.

As per Transfermarkt, that makes it ten Argentina clean sheets in a row for Romero now and his country will be delighted he is fit again.

The last time Argentina conceded with Romero on the pitch was in June 2021, when Colombia earned a 2-2 draw with them.

Argentina are actually on a hugely impressive run as a team going into the tournament in Qatar, and have not lost for 35 games.

That is great form as they go in search of a first World Cup triumph since 1986, with Lionel Messi yet to get his hands on the trophy.
