On Thursday, Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero played the full 90 minutes in Argentina’s 1-0 win over Ecuador in the World Cup qualifiers.
The 25-year-old’s fine display for his country saw him receive a standing ovation from the fans at the Estadio Más Monumental, with them singing “Olé, olé, olé, oleeeé, Cutiiii, Cutiiii” for him.
Romero has expressed his delight with the reception he received and said he won’t forget the moment for the rest of his life. The Tottenham player’s comments are relayed by today’s Olé, who then share their views on his latest performance.
The newspaper states the centre-back played ‘with the authority’ of a reigning world champion and was vital in stopping Ecuador striker Enner Valencia posing any threat to La Albiceleste.
Ange Postecoglou and Spurs will certainly be pleased with Romero’s fine display, and will be hoping he extends his good run with the north London club.
