Manchester United Star Ruled Out Of World Cup
While several Manchester United stars, including Paul Pogba, David de Gea and Romelu Lukaku, are going to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, one of the club's players has now been ruled out of the competition.
Argentina and Red Devils goalkeeper Sergio Romero has suffered a knee injury, forcing him to withdraw from his county's squad for the tournament, as announced on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old, who has been capped 94 times, was named in La Albiceleste's 23-man squad on Monday, along with fellow goalkeepers Manchester City's Willy Caballero and River Plate's Franco Armani.
The Argentine Football Association confirmed the sad news via their official Twitter account.
"Sergio Romero suffered today a joint blockage in his right knee that will leave him out of the squad," the tweet stated.
Nahuel Guzman, who plays for Mexican side Tigres, has reportedly been called up to the Argentina squad to replace Romero.
The South Americans have been drawn in Group D, alongside Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.
