‘Al remove’. After the discharge from Chucky lozano with the Tri due to injury in Gold Cup, Rodolfo Pizarro, player of the Inter Miami, will occupy the place that had to leave the ‘Devil Doll‘.
Through a statement, the Mexican Soccer Federation announced that after the Concacaf approved on Monday the replacement of players for serious injuries or Covid-19 up to 24 hours before Quarter finals, was determined by summoning the Tamaulipas.
“In the absence of a forward, the SNM coaching staff, led by Gerardo Martino, considered Pizarro as the right player to fill the vacant spot.
“This substitution was possible thanks to the fact that, last Sunday, the competition organizers reported that the teams qualified for the 2021 Gold Cup Quarterfinals would have the opportunity to make changes to their original list of 23 players for medical reasons,” detailed the release.
WHY WAS PIZARRO CALLED?
The participation of the Mexican National Team in the Gold Cup left bad news, since Chucky lozano had to leave the game against Trinidad and Tobado due to a chilling collision with the goalkeeper.
It was the 11th minute when the face of the Napoli attacker hit the knee of goalkeeper Phillip, this after a push from a defender inside the area. The images were shocking, because the Mexican was knocked out and later had to leave the field on a stretcher and with a collar.
