“Unfortunately due to my injury I will not be able to travel to greet and hug them, it is a great pain and sadness because I would have loved to be there and feel all your love and affection. Thank you for your messages and I am sure we will see you again here I will continue to recover to play again. I hug you from afar! Enjoy Scaleneta and that wonderful group“Gómez lamented the player who emerged from Arsenal de Sarandí on his Instagram account.
Papu Gómez had injured his left ankle during the World Cup – during the first half of the round of 16 match against Australia – and although he tried to recover without going under the knife to return to Sevilla as soon as possible, the discomfort in the joint did not give him peace and forced him to undergo surgery last Friday 10 February.
It was foreseen that, in addition to being convalescent, the Papu would travel the same and participate in the celebrations.

Gomez’s defeat isn’t the first time Lionel Scaloni has suffered. Days ago, youngster Alejandro Garnacho was injured playing for Manchester United and has been ruled out of the squad.
