Lucas PRATTO suffered a broken nose and had to be operated on.
The Argentina and Sao Paulo forward was operated on Saturday due to a broken nose he suffered in his last match. PRATTO, one of the forwards called-up by Edgardo BAUZA for Argentina’s upcoming World Cup Qualifiers against Chile and Bolivia, broke his nose after colliding with a defender in his team’s 3-0 loss away from home to Palmeiras.
PRATTO, who has scored 4 goals in 5 matches since joining his new club, is a doubt for Sao Paulo’s Copa de Brasil match on Wednesday but it is possible that he uses a protective mask to play. However, according to La Nacion, they will also evaluate whether or not PRATTO would be ready to play the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers.
Argentina National Team coach Edgardo BAUZA has already stated that if something were to happen to one of Gonzalo HIGUAIN or Lucas PRATTO that Mauro ICARDI would be called-up to the Argentina National Team.
