#Brazil2014: Angel Di Maria To Miss The Rest Of World Cup

share on:

Argentina‘s Angel Di Maria has suffered a tear in his right thigh and will miss the rest of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, according to reports.

The 26-year-old who scored the only goal in Argentina‘s 1-0 win over Switzerland in the round of 16 was forced to exit his side’s 1-0 quarterfinal win over Belgium in the just the 33rd minute after feeling pain in his leg.

The loss of Di Maria is a significant blow for Argentina, who have reached the World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1990.

With Di Maria in the lineup, Argentina weren’t solely reliant on Lionel Messi, but without him — and Sergio Aguero also struggling with a hamstring problem — there will be even more pressure on Messi to carry the team as World Cup glory is now just two wins away.
