Carrizo's transfer from River Plate to Lazio on hold due to citizenship problems

Argentina goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo's transfer from River Plate to Lazio will remain on hold until he gains EU citizenship, the Roman club said Thursday.
Lazio signed Carrizo in July to replace the retired Angelo Peruzzi, but he has had unanticipated problems gaining a European passport.
Lazio said Carrizo will remain with River Plate until his papers are in order. That leaves Lazio's starting job for now to 43-year-old Marco Ballotta.
Lazio qualified for the Champions League by beating Dinamo Bucharest on Tuesday.
