WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER: ANTONELA FORTUNA WILL REPLACE TANYA ACOSTA DUE TO AN INJURY

This Saturday, the coaching staff of the Women's National Team announced a change in the list of players chosen to travel to Peru to play the World Championship Qualifier in which the Panthers will seek the place for the 2018 World Championship in Japan. Antonela Fortuna will join the team due to an injury of Tanya Acosta that will marginalize her from the competition.

Argentina is working in Humahuaca, Jujuy, from Tuesday in a plan of adaptation to the height before the trip to Arequipa, venue of the World Championship Qualifier located 2335mts on the level of the sea. During a training, Acosta suffered an osteochondral injury on her left ankle that forced a change in the initial roster. Fortuna, who was part of the squad during the 2017 season, will arrive this Sunday to Humahuaca to join the team.

Argentina will play the World Championship Qualifier from October 13 to 15 looking for the available ticket for the World Championship against Peru, Uruguay and Colombia.
