Eduardo Salvio tests negative, positive for COVID, with Argentina team, waiting tests


Eduardo Salvio has tested negative and positive for COVID while with the Argentina national team.

Salvio was one of the Boca Juniors players who had tested positive for COVID back in August. While fully recovering, Salvio, along with the rest of the Argentina team, went through more tests upon arriving with the squad. Per a report by TyC Sports, Salvio underwent a test which he tested positive for antibodies which is normal after having already contracted the virus.

However, a PCR test was done on Salvio where he tested positive, which is what has the team and himself worried. He underwent a third test which proved negative. A fourth test has been done and they are waiting for the results.

Per precaution, Salvio did not take part in the training session on Tuesday afternoon.


  1. Hope salvio is not a assymptomatic case & only a false positive . Ecuador also has a player dropped with covid detection.
    More worried on musso. It seem he is out for a month. Udinese which is already struggling will sink without him. Real bad timing for him when he was in the cusp of national team role.

  2. I think scaloni does not consider Acuna as Left Back,he wants to use him in Left Midfield even as a starter. I do not understand Scaloni’s awe for Acuna.Acuna has nothing but crosses in his Arsenal. Scaloni please do not select him, Papu Gomez will be better in Left midfield role. As Pezella is injured either Nehuen Perez or F. Medina deserves chances not Quarta Martinez.
    This should be playing 11
    E. Martinez
    Montiel. Nehuen Perez. Otamendi. Tagliafico
    De Paul. Paredes. Papu Gomez
    Messi. L.Martinez. Ocampus
