Scaloni irked as visa trouble delays key defenders

Lionel Scaloni, the coach of Argentina, is upset that two key defenders arrived late for World Cup warm-ups in the U.S.

This was because they had trouble getting visas because Queen Elizabeth II died.

Lisandro Martinez of Manchester United and Cristian Romero of Tottenham Hotspur were going to join Scaloni's team before

the games against Honduras on Friday at Inter Miami's DRV PNK Stadium and Jamaica on Tuesday in New York.  

But when the queen died, the US Embassy in London had to close. This meant that both players had to fly back to Argentina to get a visa to come to the US.

Martinez made it to Miami just in time to play against Honduras, but Romero hasn't arrived yet.
