Sergi Roberto did not play for his national team side because he feels pain around his Achilles tendor. Just like Umtiti who was injured in the training session ahead of World Cup qualifiers game, it is obvious that the Barca’s right back is now experiencing pain just below his calf muscle.
The pain he felt before the game against Macedonia which ended 4–0 for Spain made the 24 years old not participate. This situation have caused worry for the Catalan club considering the fact that the club does not have a right back to take Sergi Roberto’s place.
The only person who would have being able to cover up for the Reus born player is Aleix Vidal but he’s a pariah in the club.
Unlike Umtiti who left his country teammates to carry out a test, Sergi Roberto will remain with the Spain national team and on Tuesday they will face England in Wembley. Although the pain is not as serious as that, the defender will receive treatment from Spain national team with the expectation he will recover in few days.
