Lamela will be ready against Egypt

Argentina coach Walter Perazzo says forward Erik Lamela has

recovered from an ankle sprain and will be ready to play against

Egypt in the round of 16 at the Under-20 World Cup.

Perazzo said Saturday that the Roma forward had responded well

to treatment after missing Argentina’s final group game, a 3-0

victory against North Korea.

Argentina has won the Under-20 World Cup a record six times and

has picked up five of the last eight titles.
