Paulo Dybala is injured and out of Argentina’s national team for October’s World Cup qualifiers.
AS Roma have not had the best of starts in Serie A this season, with La Lupa having a 3-3-2 record at the start of the season and sitting in an uncomfortable 10th place in the league. Rumors and reports have speculated that José Mourinho was close to the sack, but a 4-1 win over Cagliari seemed to cool those talks.
During the match against Cagliari, Roma fans gasped when one of their best players, Argentina’s World Cup winner Paulo Dybala, was injured and had to be taken off in the 40th minute.
The Laguna Larga native from Córdoba has scored two goals in six league games this season and played 90 minutes in the previous three matches. When Dybala went down, there were fears the striker would be out for a long time, but today the news is much better.
According to TyC Sports reporter Gaston Edul, Paulo Dybala has only one collateral ligament sprain. The Argentine forward can return to action in around three weeks.
Argentina’s national team plays Paraguay on October 12 and Peru on October 17, both World Cup qualifiers.
