29 minutes of the first half were played and Argentina already lost 1 to 0 against Paraguay. It was then that an aerial ball fell right on the center line, on the side closest to the local Bombonera tunnel.
Exequiel Palacios He jumped to look for the ball, something he managed with effort. But, as he fell, the Bayer Leverkusen midfielder received a double knee in the air from Ángel Romero. Minutes after the meeting, the AFA reported the official report: “Exequiel Palacios suffered a transverse process fracture of the lumbar spine. He will remain hospitalized to monitor his evolution.”
Romero’s double knee to Palacios
The actions continued, with the Paraguayan on the playing field and with the Argentine midfielder outside, precisely because of the injury suffered, before which he was urgently transferred to do studies during halftime.
Suddenly, an inevitable comparison emerged on social media. Was Romero’s action premeditated? Did he do it to execute an old and strong entrance of Palacios against his brother Oscar? Was there an outstanding debt with the exRiver? Only the man from San Lorenzo knows it in his privacy. The certain thing is that in that action, the steering wheel of River was expelled, and in this occasion, the man of San Lorenzo, no. Referee Claus and the VAR officials may have seen “excessive use of force.”
It was, in a way, an action similar to the foul that Neymar Jr. received a few years ago at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, when Colombian Camilo Zúñiga rammed the star from behind and fractured the Brazilian’s third lumbar vertebra . After being operated, Neymar returned to play a month later.
This is how Palacios left the clinic where he was examined
Own Lionel Scaloni showed concern for his player. “It will be days or months away. I send a big hug to Exequiel, I hope you get better soon. The group is affected, not only by their contribution as a footballer but by what they do to the human group, “he said at the press conference.
