Eduardo Salvio injured himself on Sunday while playing for Boca Juniors and will miss Argentina’s World Cup qualifers as well as the Copa America.
Salvio was substituted early in Boca’s 1-1 draw vs. Sarmiento with tests done on him on Monday. The tests concluded that Salvio has torn his ACL and will be out for 6 months. This would mean that he would not only miss this month’s World Cup qualifiers for Argentina but also the Copa America in a few months.
The Argentine has been selected by Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni in the past for the World Cup qualifiers.
