"Sergio Romero suffered a joint block in his right knee that will leave him out of the squad." The statement from the Argentine Football Association was brief. Almost as long as Chiquito's dream lasted for his third World Cup (he had already been to South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014).

A right knee injury that has been making personal mark since the friendly against Spain after finishing the last training gave the bad grade. That way from the official Twitter of the Albiceleste confirmed the loss of "Chiquito" and who will join the team is nothing more and nothing less than Nahuel Guzman, the goalkeeper of Tigres de la Liga MX.
There is a possibility of cartilage detachment that could even affect the meniscus. The estimated recovery time is three to four weeks. For this reason from the technical staff of the Argentine team opted to unsubscribe the player.
"Nahuel Guzmán will be the goalkeeper who will replace Sergio Romero in the call." It was the Argentine national team's message two hours after sending the first statement.
