Wouldn’t it just be our luck if Lucas Torreira came back from international duty with an injury, as he is the one new arrival from the summer that Arsenal fans are desperate to see play every week. So far he has only made three appearances from the substitutes bench, but he finally started a game for Uruguay last night, but was taken off at half time. The Metro reported today…..
Arsenal are sweating on the fitness of Lucas Torreira after the summer signing from Sampdoria was substituted at half time during Uruguay’s 4-1 win over Mexico.
Playing their first match since a World Cup quarter final defeat at the hands of eventual champions France, Uruguay sauntered to a convincing victory with Jose Gimenez and Luis Suarez among the goalscorers.
Torreira started in central midfield but was withdrawn at the break, replaced by former Middlesbrough forward Christian Stuani, and was pictured with an ice pack covering his left leg.
With most of our first team internationals yet to be involved in games, we still have quite a few possibilities of further injuries to our players. I know we are only playing Newcastle next but I am just desperate to see Torreira playing regularly. Please please please make it just a little knock!
