Di María out of World Cup
The Argentine player was injured in the quarter-final against Belgium, coming off in the 33rd minute.
Ángel Di María was substituted in the 33rd minute of the Argentina – Belgium game (Argentina 1-0 Belgium), suffering from what appeared to be a muscle strain. Enzo Pérez came on for him. While the injury to his right leg is not considered to be serious, sources at the Argentinean Football Association confirmed that it would prevent him from playing any further part in this World Cup. Di Maria will see doctors to determine the precise extent of the injury.
The injury occurred when the Real Madrid player ran and shot in the 28th minute. He tried to continue but five minutes later he pulled up and sat on the turf; a stretcher was brought for him, but he managed to hobble off the pitch.
