Argentina's Lanzini ruled out of World Cup

Argentina's Lanzini ruled out of World Cup

West Ham's Argentina midfielder Manuel Lanzini will miss the World Cup after suffering a ruptured anterior knee ligament injury in training.

Lanzini, 25, was looking to establish himself in the national team after an impressive season with Premier League side West Ham United.

Lanzini, a Slaven Bilic signing from Al Jazira for West Ham back in 2015, will be understandably extremely disappointed to miss his first World Cup tournament.

Argentina cancelled their final warm-up clash with Israel on Saturday, meaning the only preparation they have had since a 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Spain in March was a routine 4-0 victory over Haiti.

Argentina's national team is due to travel to Russian Federation on Saturday for the World Cup.

The West Ham United player has suffered a awful ACL injury and is out of the team.

Argentina have yet to announce a replacement for Lanzini. Lanzini would have been an option starting for Jorge Sampaoli, and given Argentina some speed and spark in a potential win or go home scenario.

Twice world champions and beaten finalists in Brazil four years ago, Argentina face Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia in the group stage in Russian Federation this year.
