Could he play again? Tottenham Hotspur star ‘fed up’ with injury woes following poor FIFA World Cup debut, according to reports

Cristiano Romero of Tottenham Hotspur is fed up with his injury woes following a poor FIFA World Cup debut.

Tottenham Hotspur star Cristian Romero is said to be “fed up with the injury woes that could cost him his dream of making his 2022 FIFA World Cup journey one to remember,” according to the Independent.

Romero appeared in 59 minutes of La Albiceleste’s 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia in their first group-stage match. Lisandro Martinez took his place shortly

Romero and his teammates did not cover themselves in glory for Salem Aldawsari’s 53rd-minute winner which came after the Argentines struggled to clear the ball to safety.

Romero’s injury issues

The former Juventus defender looked a bit nervy on the ball and wasn’t playing his best football, but he was arguably not as bad as some believe his performance was.

Much of his poor World Cup debut could be marked down to his injury issues before it. He came into the game having missed six games across competitions for us with an injury.

Before his hip injury, he had adductor problems earlier this campaign. He is fit and playing now, which is all that is needed for him to make this World Cup a memorable one for himself.
