Cristian Cuti Romero is fit and will start for the Argentina national team vs. Saudi Arabia.

Cuti Romero is going to be in the starting eleven for Argentina’s first game at the 2022 World Cup. According to Gastón Edul, he is 100% and will play.

Romero has been the subject of a lot of rumors and reports lately regarding his fitness. One of the first players to arrive to the Argentina camp for the World Cup, Romero did not play in the 5-0 win vs. United Arab Emirates.


  1. Messi trained seperately bcz as a precaution not to happen any tiny injury before crucial.matches.. Cuti is ready a welcome news. hope he is a different player when wearing sky-blue everytime. Pray for all our 26 players injury free and fully fit for 7 games

  2. Messi not injured, just a precaution. He played 90 minutes and he just got a break. Smart move by the team.

    10 players seem to be confirmed to start: Emi; Molina, Cuti, Otamendi, Acuna; Paredes, De Paul, Messi, Di Maria, Lautaro

    The last place comes down to Papu vs MacAllister

    Leo Messi está bien. Se entrenó aparte por pequeñas sobrecargas. Es natural que no se exija cuando no es necesario.
    Está bien para el 22 de noviembre

  3. For fks sake. Positive vibes only. I am under incredible mental stress due to a family emergency yet still trying to check on updtes. Dont know if I will be able to watch any match this WC. So saying this life is beautiful and we only have so much time to enjoy. Please stay positive and enjoy our favorite NT. La Scaloneta is the spirit of the team. We will overcome challenges.

  4. The ones wearing red vest in training should be the starters. They are
    Emi Martinez; Molina, Cuti, Otamendi, ACUNA; Paredes, De Paul, MACALLISTER, PAPU, Di Maria, Lautaro

    Messi not included but he is a starter right?

    So Acuna will start and it is between MacAllister and Papu? Messi will replace one of them in the starting line up

    Licha and Palacios the 2 absentees
