Tottenham fans fuming as Erik Lamela misses out on Argentina squad

Premiership Picks

Having arrived from AS Roma in the summer of 2013, Erik Lamela has had an inconsistent career at Tottenham. The 27-year-old has found himself in and out of the side in recent seasons, struggling to nail down a first-team spot on a regular basis.

However, following the absences of Dele Alli and Son Heung-min in the opening weeks of the season, Lamela has featured from the off against Aston Villa and Manchester City.

After an uneventful display against Dean Smith’s side, the attacker came back to form with a fine strike against the Premier League champions at the Etihad on Saturday. He then provided the second goal with a delicious corner kick.

However, his goal-scoring performance was deemed not quite enough for him to earn a call-up to the Argentina national squad for the upcoming international break.

Many supporters of the north London side revealed their shock at seeing the Argentine miss out, and labelled it a mistake on the national team’s part.

Some however opted to take a more positive outlook on things, and suggested Lamela could now remain at Tottenham “fit and healthy”.
