Argentina’s Lanzini ruled out of World Cup

The attacking midfielder caught Sampaoli's eye with five goals in 29 appearances for West Ham last season.

Argentina have called up Enzo Perez to replace the unfortunate Manuel Lanzini.

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

Perez will travel directly to Russian Federation from Argentina to meet up with his global teammates, who left Barcelona on Saturday.

Argentina are in Group D with Iceland - whom they play in their 16 June opener - as well as Nigeria and Croatia.

Last month, Commissioner Roger Goodell announced a new policy requiring players on-field before the game to stand for the anthem. At the meeting, Trump said his wife "went through a little rough patch, but she's doing great.


The seriousness of the injury also means Lanzini is likely to miss the opening games of the 2018-19 Premier League season.

Sampaoli originally named a 35-man provisional squad for Russian Federation and will likely select a replacement from the 12 players he dropped for his final group.

West Ham have been linked with a number of midfielders in the transfer market, including Manchester City veteran Yaya Toure, and Lanzini's injury could intensify the pursuit for signings in this area.

Interestingly, Lanzini's selection by manager Jorge Sampaoli at the first instance did not go down too well with some Argentine fans.
