In the beginning there was apprehension about playing in the first match in the World Cup. However, Argentina midfielder Giovanni Lo Celso was pulled out of the Qatar tournament due to a muscle injury.
Lo Celso’s club Villarreal said on Tuesday that he will undergo surgery to repair the injury. Which practically ended Argentina’s slim chances of playing in the World Cup.
Lo Celso left the field with an injury in the 30th minute of the team’s 1-0 loss against Athletic Bilbao last Sunday in La Liga.
