Messi and Argentina teammates are absolutely gutted about Manuel Lanzini's injury

Messi and Argentina teammates are absolutely gutted about Manuel Lanzini's injury

Argentina star Manuel Lanzini has been ruled out of the World Cup with a serious knee injury.

Lanzini was named in Jorge Sampaoli's 23-man squad last month.

Lanzini, a Slaven Bilic signing from Al Jazira for West Ham back in 2015, will be understandably extremely disappointed to miss his first World Cup tournament.

The loss of Lanzini will not end chances of Argentina going far, but they lose a good assist/goal threat to compliment Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain.

Argentina will be without Manuel Lanzini for the World Cup after the West Ham attacking midfielder suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a training session. Argentina begins their World Cup campaign against Iceland next Saturday.

West Ham fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment at the news and with their superstar well in his recovery from a nasty injury.

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.

It remains to be seen for how long Lanzini is on the sidelines, although it is likely that he will miss the start of next season, given the severity of his injury.
