'Crazy good': Fans hail 25-year-old Spurs ace's latest display for his country
Spurs midfielder Giovani Lo Celso was in World Cup qualifying action for Argentina last night.
The Tottenham ace delivered an impressive display for his nation, providing a superb assist in a 3-1 win over Venezuela.
Lo Celso split the defence open with a pass for reported Spurs summer target Lautaro Martinez, who calmly slotted home.
Argentina’s goal came near the end of a first half which saw Luis Martinez sent off for a horror tackle on Lionel Messi.
Joaquin Correa and Angel Correa extended the visitors’ lead in the second half before Yeferson Soteldo scored a late consolation from the spot.
All in all a successful night’s work for the Albiceleste, with Lo Celso once again shining for his nation.
And plenty of Argentina fans loved what they saw from the Spurs man:

When in form everything looks so simple to him. Lautaro scored like a perfect No.9
Lets hope Messi is fine after that horrible tackle,we all need a goal from him.Argentina definitely improved on the ball but we all know South American football is rash
