Official: Gio Lo Celso misses 2022 World Cup for Argentina


Gio Lo Celso will miss the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with the Argentina national team.

Lo Celso will not be going to the 2022 World Cup. Several reports out of Argentina are stating that Villarreal have communicated that Lo Celso will not be at the World Cup as he requires surgery.

The 26 year old was substituted out for Villarreal in their last league game due to a muscle injury. And according to TyC Sports, Lo Celso has a detachment in the muscle.

The injury could mean surgery and Tottenham Hotspur want him to get operated but Lo Celso himself doesn’t want that. If he were to undergo surgery, he would not play at the World Cup in Qatar.

He doesn’t want surgery and would prefer rehab. But even if he were to do rehab, Lionel Scaloni and his coaching staff know that he would still miss the first few games of the World Cup.

But Argentina National team coach Lionel Scaloni does not count Unfit players in the World Cup 26-man final Squad.
