Spurs told they have a player who, at his best, makes 'every fan of the beautiful game tingle'
Spurs midfielder Giovani Lo Celso earned rave reviews for his latest outing with Argentina.
The Tottenham ace delivered an impressive display for his nation in the 3-1 World Cup qualifying win over Venezuela.
Lo Celso provided an amazing assist for Argentina to open the scoring in the first half of the Caracas clash.
The 25-year-old 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 then extended the visitors’ lead in the second half.
Yeferson Soteldo scored a late consolation from the spot, but the Albiceleste were home and dry by then.
Spurs ace capable of the “spectacular”
The Argentinian football media loved what they saw from Lo Celso.
Pagina12 wrote: “His football, when on, makes every fan of the beautiful game tingle.
“He made two spectacular passes – on 39 minutes, he moved to the right to produce a deep diagonal that Lautaro could not meet.
“On 46 minutes, the beautiful through-ball which led to the goal.”
Meanwhile, Ole wrote: “With a lot of confidence in his technique, he attempted a backheel assist, linked up well Messi and provided deluxe passes like the two he gave to Lautaro.”
It’s great to see Lo Celso do so well on international duty and earn so much praise.
Food for thought for Nuno Espirito Santo, who will be eager to get the same out of him in north London.
