As a result of a muscular injury he suffered in the Champions League, Juventus star Angel Di Maria may not be able to play for Argentina at the World Cup. Even worse for Juve was their shocking 2-0 loss to amateurs Maccabi Haifa on Tuesday.
which put them one step closer to elimination from the Champions League and into the Europa League. A mere 24 minutes into the match, with his team behind 1-0 to the Israeli side, Di Maria was chasing after a pass in the middle of the field.
The ex-Manchester United player, however, stopped running and started gripping the back of his right leg. He then shook his head at his bench, looked extremely upset, and limped off the field while wiping his eyes with his shirt.
It’s concerning for his future with Argentina at what will very certainly be his last World Cup, as it’ll be held in Qatar in a little over a month. An injury to the 34-year-old was just one of many setbacks for Juve on a frustrating evening. Omer Atzili scored after only seven minutes for the Israeli Premier League club.
Terrible news for Argentina's national team.
