Manchester United and Argentina goalkeeper, Sergio Romero, has been ruled out of La Albiceleste’s 2018 FIFA World Cup due to a knee injury.
Romero’s injury and withdrawal was announced on the Argentine’s national team verified Twitter handle late Tuesday night.
The 31-year-old had been named along with Willy Caballero and Franco Armani in Argentina’s 23-man squad on Monday.
The tweet reads: “Sergio Romero suffered today a joint blockage in his right knee that will leave him out of the squad.”
Romero was in goal for Argentina at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil where they lost 1-0 to Germany in the final.
He was also in goal for Argentina at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa where they got to the quarter-finals.
