Angel Di Maria suffers thigh injury

Gonzalo Higuain addressed the media following Argentina's 1-0 win over Belgium, and touched upon Angel Di Maria's importance to the squad moving forward into the semi-finals.

Argentina boss Alejandro Sabella said Angel Di Maria would undergo tests on Sunday to determine the extent of the injury he sustained in his side's victory over Belgium.

- Wilmots: Argentina are an ordinary team
- Sabella: Argentina will go down in history

Di Maria had to be substituted in the first half of Argentina's 1-0 win in Brasilia as a result of a thigh problem, but Sabella hopes he may be able to feature when Argentina return to action for Wednesday's semifinal.

"Angel has a problem in his right thigh and tomorrow he will have some tests and we will see," he said. "I hope that it won't be too [bad] in the case of Angel because Angel is vital to us."
