The Juventus forward could not recover from the gastroenteritis box.
A while before getting on the plane to leave for the second commitment of these Qualifiers for the Qatar World Cup, Lionel Scaloni and his coaching staff decided, supported by the doctor’s diagnosis Daniel Martinez, disaffected Paulo Dybala. The forward, who suffered a severe gastroenteritis, did not recover in time to travel to Bolivia.
“The player Paulo Dybala will not travel to Bolivia with the National Team since he is not in conditions for sports practice. He will continue to recover after his abdominal box”, was the medical report communicated through the networks of the national team.
The jewel no luck. He had already missed the premiere with a victory against Ecuador and now he will not be in La Paz either. A rather acute gastrointestinal picture attacked him hours before playing. In fact, the Juventus footballer even raised a fever, who had coronavirus during the quarantine in Italy.
His hope was to be able to recover to be on the second date; however, that could not happen. Both on Friday and Saturday and this Sunday, Dybala had to train apart from the group, with very light movements. The medical body assessed that he needs more time to return to one hundred percent and communicated it to Scaloni, who determined that he did not get on the albiceleste plane.
After getting rid of Covid-19 after several weeks, the Cordoba returned with everything to activity after the stop. He presented a great level in Serie A with goals that served for the Juve will keep the title once more. But an injury cut minutes at the start of the new season.
Now he had traveled to Argentina with the desire and the idea of being able to add play in the National Team in his quest to find his place in a team in which he could never shine. His last image in the duel with Chile in the Copa América was very positive and that is why he intended to continue on that path, although this abdominal ailment marginalized him.
He is the third disaffected Scaloni has since he has all those mentioned in Ezeiza. The first two were Juan Musso and Giovanni Lo Celso. The goalkeeper broke the internal meniscus of his right knee and was operated on in Italy, while the midfielder was dragging a muscle injury. The DT decided to summon Jeremías Ledesma to replace Musso, but chose not to call any more outfield players.
In this way, the celestial and white delegation that will arrive in La Paz this Sunday night will be 26 players. They have already left Ezeiza in a large plane, which due to its size is not authorized to land at the La Paz airport. That is why there will be a stopover in Santa Cruz de la Sierra where they will change to two smaller planes and then continue to the final destination. The estimated arrival time is 20.30.
