Tottenham Hotspur: Fans can’t believe Giovani Lo Celso was called up by Argentina

Juan Foyth and Giovani Lo Celso have been called up to the Argentina national team, as reported on Tottenham Hotspur’s official Twitter page.

This comes despite the fact that they have played a measly 17 and 57 minutes of football across all competitions for Spurs this season, as per WhoScored.

Should Lo Celso replace Christian Eriksen ASAP?

Yes

Yes

No

No

While they haven’t been deemed fit enough to represent their club in recent months, Lionel Scaloni seems to think the pair are ready for international football:

Many Spurs fans are shocked to see either of them included, but the most concern seems to be around Lo Celso, due to the fact that he only just seems to be approaching fitness, having made cameo appearances against Red Star Belgrade and Liverpool.

Some fans have taken this as an opportunity to tell Mauricio Pochettino that he should start playing the 23-year-old and his fellow Argentinian more, while others are fearful of another injury occurring.

A selection of Twitter reaction to the announcement, including posts from shocked Spurs fans, can be seen below:
