Perez replaces Lanzini in Argentina World Cup squad

Argentina confirm Manuel Lanzini is out of the World Cup with ACL injury

Following Manuel Lanzini's training ground injury on global duty, Inter Milan's talismanic striker Mauro Icardi is being lined up as his replacement for the Argentina squad to travel to Russian Federation this summer for the World Cup.

River Plate midfielder Enzo Perez has been called up by Argentina to replace the injured Manuel Lanzini for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The 25-year-old had been knocking on the door of national honours for a while, and he finally broke into the Argentina squad last year, when he made his debut against Brazil in Melbourne. Argentina have been drawn in Group D alongside Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria.

Perez will travel directly to Russian Federation from Argentina to meet up with his global teammates, who left Barcelona on Saturday.

West Ham fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment at the news and with their superstar well in his recovery from a nasty injury.

Lanzini will be in recovery for several months and is a serious doubt for the start of West Ham's 2018/19 campaign in the Premier League.

Interestingly, Lanzini's selection by manager Jorge Sampaoli at the first instance did not go down too well with some Argentine fans.
