Manuel Lanzini will miss the World Cup and the beginning of the 2018/19 season after tearing ligaments in his right knee.

The 25-year-old Hammer, who was tipped to play an integral role in the Argentine's World Cup campaign is understood to have ruptured an anterior cruciate ligament during training - on the day that the tournament officially begins.

Although it is early days, and a full diagnosis is yet to be made, such an injury could potentially keep Lanzini sidelined for up to nine months - meaning that he could potentially miss most of the forthcoming 2018/19 season.
