Argentina star in doubt for the match with Australia

1 year ago

Midfielder Angel Di Maria’s availability for the match against Australia is still in doubt. The Argentinian midfielder was injured in the match against Poland and was forced to leave the playing field prematurely.

The player has been under monitoring for the past two days and the medical staff has performed an ultrasound of the leg, stating that the player does not have any serious muscle damage. It seems that the muscle problem came from overexertion.

However, the presence of the Juventus midfielder on the field in the meeting against Australia is in doubt and coach Lionel Scaloni will decide on his activation only before the match. This challenge will be played on Saturday evening.

“We will not risk it. We’ll see how things go over the next few hours and decide. We will not make any hasty decisions. Di Maria is important for us and we hope to have him on the pitch,” said Scaloni.
