Argentina midfielder Lucas Biglia faces a race against time to be fit for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia in June after he sustained a back injury while playing for AC Milan in Saturday’s Italian Serie A defeat at home to Benevento.
Biglia suffered a slight lumbar fracture in his back and has been ruled out of action for at least six weeks.
“Biglia suffered “a severe lumbar trauma” following an injury during Saturday’s 1-0 Serie A defeat against Benevento,” Milan said in a statement on Sunday.
“The player has undergone medical examinations that highlighted a fracture of the transverse processes of the first two lumbar vertebrae.
“A detailed prognosis will be issued in the coming days upon completion of all medical tests.”
Biglia starred for Argentina at the 2014 World Cup where they finished as runners-up to Germany.
He also played in most of their 18-match qualifying campaign.
Argentina will face Croatia, Iceland and Nigeria in Group D at the World Cup in Russia.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.

Ope o!!! .Messi next !!!
@Shade, what is ope o. Nigerians are not a people who rejoice over the misfortune of another. We need all the best legs at the WC. Even if he is an opponent, we should wish him a quick recovery. Consider first the pains and worries in his heart. If he is married, the stress on his family and friends. Consider this fact what happened to Biglia can also happen to any person including even our players. Abi. Meanwhile, he may not be a first team player. So his injury may be irrelevant as he may not even get a minute of play time. So wish him well.
Na Wetin dey happen to these Argentines? The world cup is too close to be getting injured! Lord, keep the Super Eagles players safe!
#shade, we already have 3 Nigerians on injury list. Onazi, Ebueh and Balogun. As you know Balogun is a key player for Nigeria. There is a proverb in my place Okrika that “as you bend down to look at another’s anus, yours is wide opened too to be looked at.” We wish all the WC bound players a state of fitness so that all of us the fans and supporters will enjoy the it. Messi, Mikel, CR7, Troost, De Gea, Uzoho, Williams, Victor Moses, Kpoba, Abdulahi, Kante, Iwobi, Silva, Aina, Hazard, Kane, Odion Ighalo, Alli, Ahmed Musa, Ozil and all known players should be sound and fit for Russia.
Messi be warming up to join your injured teamates. Lol
