Many international football fans have been reacting to the performance of Spurs star Cristian Romero during Argentina’s 1-0 victory against Uruguay in World Cup Qualifying on Friday night.
The 23-year-old, signed by the Lilywhites on a season-long loan from Serie A side Atalanta this summer, has become one of the first names on the team sheet for Spurs this campaign, and will no doubt be a big part of Antoni Conte’s side.
Now, the Argentinian produced another formidable display on Friday evening for his nation during their World Cup Qualifier victory against Uruguay, playing the full 90 minutes and nullifying the threat of Luis Suarez as they won 1-0 courtesy of Angel Di Maria’s 7th minute strike.
Is Romero better than Rudiger?
Many fans have subsequently taken to Twitter to hail Romero’s commanding display against Uruguay.
What did fans think of Cristian Romero’s display vs Uruguay?
“Fabio pulled a masterstroke on this one. How’s he managed to get him in I’ll never know”
“He’s been way more impressive of a passer than was thought when we bought him. So damn good”
“Still can’t believe he sign for us and he’s only 23”
“Best defender in the world”
“There’s a certain abrasiveness and confidence to his play that I admire. He’s gonna become a Spurs legend…”
“I don’t expect anything else from our talisman”
Argentina next take on fierce rivals Brazil in their next World Cup qualifier on Tuesday as they seek to reach the Qatar 2022 version of the competition, with the Selecao recently qualifying for the tournament following their 1-0 victory against Colombia courtesy of Lucas Paqueta’s winner between the two sides on Thursday evening.
The £31.5m-rated Romero will subsequently return to Spurs, who next face Leeds in their next Premier League match against Leeds United on Sunday 21st November at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
