Argentina captain, Lionel Messi, has lauded Premier League star Cristian Romero for his performances with the country.

Romero, who currently plays for Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur, has been solid in La Albicelestes backline since making his debut last year.

The 24-year-old helped Argentina national team win the Copa America trophy in 2021 and also made it to the Team of the Tournament.

Romero also helped Argentina win La Finalissima against the 2020 Euro champions, Italy, earlier this year.


In a Netflix documentary on their Copa America success titled “Sean Eternos: Campeones de America,” Messi described Romero’s display for Argentina as ‘extraordinary.’


The Paris Saint-Germain forward said (via The Spurs Web), “Cuti’s appearance was extraordinary for us, for the future of the team and for that moment.”
