The presence of the youthful Alejandro Garnacho in the friendlies that the Argentine national team will hold on the 23rd and 28th of this month against Panama and Curaçao, respectively, remains shrouded in doubts after the results of the medical studies carried out this Monday in England on his right knee, after of the injury suffered in yesterday’s match between his team Manchester United and Southampton, in the English Premier League.
The lack of an official medical report from the English club after these studies carried out this Monday in Manchester raised doubts about the degree of importance of the injury, both around United itself and, of course, the Argentine team, at 10 exact days of the first match against the Panamanians at the Más Monumental stadium.
When leaving the stadium, he was seen with a prosthetic boot on the affected leg and moving on crutches.
And today, once the results of the studies by the Manchester United medical department and the player himself were known, a brief message of support from his brother Roberto generated as much concern as uncertainty regarding the severity of the injury: “I know you will return stronger,” he posted.
Garnacho, 18, born on July 1, 2004 in Madrid, Spain, suffered a tough challenge from Southampton defender Kyle Walker Peters yesterday, a quarter of an hour after entering the field of play in the second half, in a infraction that could well be considered a criminal offense, and caused alarm in all his teammates while the footballer wallowed in tears. The first to approach was his partner, the Argentine defender Lisandro Martínez.
In this way, and while precise news is awaited on the state of the promising attacker mentioned by Lionel Scaloni, in Argentina the sale of tickets for that first match at the River Plate stadium has not yet been arranged, although it is estimated that tomorrow the AFA will hold the corresponding announcement on the date on which the sale of seats will begin, which could be closer to next weekend.
And precisely in River they hope that by renting the stadium to the AFA to host this match against Panama, the Núñez club would have around $1,800,000 in tickets, according to sources close to them.
The other match on March 28 against Curacao will take place at the Único Madre de Ciudades stadium, in Santiago del Estero.
