translated from Spanish: Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games: Lautaro Martínez, Gonzalo Montiel and players who would stay away

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) finally relented on Tuesday to pressure from federations and governments and confirmed in a statement that the Tokyo Olympics are postponed «until the summer of 2021, at the latest» because of the coronavirus pandemic. However, by 2021 the Argentine national team could lose several of its figures as the deadline allowed for players in Tokyo 2020 was January 1, 1997 and several players from the list that Batista sent for the contest in Asia could remain off the payroll by age, like Gonzalo Montiel or Lautaro Martínez. Almost all of the campus must be Under-23. But the truth is that given the atypical circumstances there could be some exceptional regulatory change. While it is still premature to make decisions, since the crack that emerged from Racing could still go to the Games as one of the three over 23 years allowed, at the moment the organizers are looking at whether the fairest option would be to be sustained and played up 24 years old and in that case the deadline would be 1 January 1998.In the same situation that Lautaro are the following footballers: Hernán De La Fuente (Vélez Sarsfield); Gonzalo Montiel (River Plate); Marcos Senesi (Feyenoord, Netherlands); Claudio Bravo (Banfield); Gonzalo Escobar (Colon of Santa Fe); Santiago Cáseres (America of Mexico); Santiago Ascacibar (Hertha Berlin, Germany); Santiago Colombatto (St.Truiden, Belgium); Lucas Robertone (Velez); Ezequiel Ponce (Spartak Moscow, Russia) and Matías Vargas (Espanyol, Spain).
