World Cup 2018 – Argentina GoalKeeper Ruled Out Over Knee Injury

The 31-year-old Manchester United player Sergio Romero has won 94 caps for the country and played in the 2014 World Cup final defeat by Germany.

Chelsea’s Willy Caballero, with two caps, and River Plate’s Franco Armani, who is uncapped, are Argentina’s reserve goalkeepers.

Tigres’ Nahuel Guzman has been called into the squad as Romero’s replacement.

Argentina’s Football Association said Romero will have surgery on his injured right knee.

Argentina will begin their World Cup campaign against Iceland on June 16 before games against Croatia and Nigeria in Group D.
