West Ham’s Argentina midfielder Manuel Lanzini has been ruled out of the World Cup after suffering a ruptured anterior knee ligament injury in training.
Lanzini was named in Jorge Sampaoli’s 23-man squad last month.
The 25-year-old made 27 appearances for West Ham in the Premier League last season, scoring five goals.
Argentina begin their World Cup campaign against Iceland on 16 June before games against Croatia and Nigeria in Group D.
