Argentina and Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria is set to miss the World Cup semi final against Holland with a groin strain. However, Argentina and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been passed fit to play Holland on Wednesday.
The team’s doctor said “”Angel has a Grade One strain. Of course he won’t play in Argentina’s next game.
“After that, we’ll evaluate the situation day-by-day but Sergio has practiced three times. He’s ready to play.”
Speaking ahead of the Holland game Mascherano said “The group as a whole is very happy, except for the situation with Angel, which is a great shame. We hope he recovers soon.
Against Belgium, we used the spaces better. We didn’t rush. We waited for the right moment to pass.
It was a lovely game but it was yesterday. Now we’re focused on Holland. We know they are still smarting from defeat in South Africa four years ago.”
