* The painful blow that took Juan Musso out of the game

The world of football entered that sensitive area of ​​the calendar where any injury, no matter how small, can leave a player out of the World Cup. That is why the medical chart of John Musso turned on all the warning lights on the board of the Argentine team. The Atalanta goalkeeper suffered a facial fracture during the last presentation and went through the operating room two months after kick-off in Qatar.

The doctors had to use screws and plates in the intervention that was successful, although an official estimate of his return to the courts is not known. “Juan Musso underwent reduction and containment surgery with plates and screws for a displaced fracture of the right orbital/maxillary complex. The operation, carried out at the Villa Stuart clinic in Rome and carried out by Prof. Bruno Andrea Pesucci and Dr. Vincenzo Marcelli, was a resounding success”, clarified the statement issued by the Italian club.

This injury leaves the 28-year-old footballer a few steps behind Geronimo Rulli in the bid for the third ticket among the archers. Logic indicates that Emilian drawing Martinez Y Frank Armani they will have the first seats, while the two of them were fighting for that other place. A detail hours before the injury occurred had already positioned the former Students ahead of Musso: Lionel Scaloni had left him in the final cut for friendlies against Honduras and Jamaica.

Sportingly born in Racing and with a previous stopover in Udinese, Musso barely lasted four minutes of the last game of Atalanta against Roma for Serie A. He went to head a ball without too much danger at the door of his area, but at the same time his teammate Merih Demiral also looked for it. The shock left as balance the fracture in the cheekbone area and the immediate exit of that meeting.

The urgency to start the recovery is marked with a detail: the goalkeeper did not return to Bergamo and underwent surgery directly in Rome hours after the match. “Juan Musso was operated on in the capital, at the Villa Stuart nursing home, by Professor Bruno Pesucci, a specialist in maxillofacial surgery,” the newspaper clarified. Gazzetta dello Sport.

Usual summoned by the DT for the meetings of Argentina, Musso even started in the Qualifiers in the 3-0 against Bolivia when drawing Martinez had been disaffected and Armani was injured. In that match, which took place a year ago, the man from Atalanta won the title over Rulli. Previously, he had only played a few minutes in a 2019 friendly against Morocco.

30 years old, born in Estudiantes de La Plata, with a past in Real Sociedad in Spain and Montpellier in France and currently in the Spanish Villarreal, Rulli is facing one of his most outstanding sporting moments after having been the central protagonist of the team that reached the semifinals Champions League in the last edition. He formally started his career in the senior team with two friendlies in 2018, but took a step forward in March of this year during the 1-1 against Ecuador in Guayaquil for Qualifiers. That day, in which he took advantage of the loss of the suspended Martínez, he stood out despite receiving a goal.

Although it is true that the list was extended to 26 surnames for the World Cup in Qatar and that this could open another gap for a fourth goalkeeper, it will be up to the coaches whether they have the usual three or add one more. It sounds difficult for one of the extra tickets to apply to the goalkeepers, so the picture seems to be clear in that sector if no other surprise appears.

Still, the unknowns they will only begin to clear on October 21 when Argentina must present the preliminary list that has room for 55 soccer players at most, although possibly the number of those mentioned is around the 35 that the provisional rosters of the previous world cups usually had. On November 14 will be the moment of truth, when the 26 surnames that will travel to Qatar to debut on the 22nd of that month against Saudi Arabia in Group C are announced.
