Argentina midfielder Angel Di Maria has been ruled out of the World Cup semi-final against the Netherlands with a thigh injury.
BRASILIA: Argentina hopes of seeing Angel Di Maria in action were ended by injury.
Doctors confirmed Di Maria will miss the semi-final against the Netherlands because of a thigh problem but did not rule the winger out of being fit for the final should Argentina prevail in Sao Paulo on Wednesday.
"Angel has a Grade 1 injury. Of course he won't play in Argentina's next game. After that, we'll evaluate the situation day-by-day," team doctor Daniel Martinez told reporters.
Meanwhile, striker Sergio Aguero has been declared fit to play after recovering from a similar problem.
