2018 FIFA WC: Another star Argentine play maker ruled out of injury

Argentine play maker will miss the World Cup

XtraTime Web Desk: Manuel Lanzini has been ruled out of Argentina’s FIFA World Cup campaign after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Argentina will be without Manuel Lanzini for the World Cup after the West Ham attacking midfielder suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a training session.

The 25-year-old had fought his way into the defeated 2014 finalists’ World Cup squad since making his debut as a substitute against Brazil in June 2017, Jorge Sampoli’s first game in charge.

Lanzini has earned four caps to date and scored his first senior international goal in a 2-0 friendly victory over Italy.
