Juan Foyth made his first Argentina appearance since the 2019 Copa America in their 2-2 draw with Germany in Dortmund this evening. 

The 21-year-old, who suffered a ankle injury during Tottenham’s Audi Cup match against Bayern Munich in July, forcing him to miss the opening weeks of the season, has played just once for Spurs this season in their shock Carabao Cup defeat at Colchester United last month.

Foyth returned to the bench at Brighton on Saturday, but was an unused substitute as Moussa Sissoko was picked ahead of him at right-back – with Serge Aurier suspended.

But the defender got his first taste of action for his country this season and started at right-back, a position Foyth will hoping to be asked to fill when Spurs return to Premier League action against Watford after the international break.

Foyth’s Argentina were 2-0 down at the break, but second-half goals from Lucas Alario and Lucas Ocampos earned them a share of the spoils.

Erik Lamela was an unused substitute at Signal Iduna Park.
