ARGENTINA WINGER ANGEL Di Maria has reportedly been ruled out of the remainder of the World Cup.

The Real Madrid attacker came off injured in the first half of the Albiceleste’s quarter-final win over Belgium and, according to AS, the team medics suggest it will be impossible for him to return to fitness before next Sunday’s final.

The report from within the camp say the injury is not a serious one, but they will await a scan on the leg before putting a more solid time-frame on his recovery.
