Cristian Romero’s visa saga has ended, and he is set to play for Argentina against Jamaica.

Argentina was missing a big name in Cristian Romero of Tottenham Hotspur when they faced Honduras on Saturday at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

That was due to the Argentine defender’s visa not being processed because the US Embassy in the UK experienced paperwork delays following Her Majesty The Queen’s death on September 8. As a result, the former Atalanta center-back was not included in Argentina’s matchday squad.

In all honesty, they didn’t miss him and cruised to a 3-0 win, with Lionel Messi scoring a brace. It was never about the game, though.

With the FIFA World Cup less than two months away, players and managers would have wanted to get some crucial pre-event training in. It was critical for Romero to connect with his teammates in the United States in this regard.

Romero receives a boost

Romero’s paperwork has now been received, according to TyC Sports (h/t Football.London), and the defender will join his teammates in the North American country. He is also scheduled to play in their next game.

In an international friendly on September 28 in New Jersey, the 1978 and 1986 FIFA World Cup winners will face Jamaica. The defensive pairing against Honduras was German Pezzella and Manchester United’s Lisandro Martinez.

Scaloni should start Romero against the Jamaicans. Of course, Tottenham fans would have preferred that the 23-year-old’s chances of fatigue and injury on international duty be as low as possible.
