Ángel Di María will not start for Argentina vs. Australia in the Round of 16 on Saturday.

The 34 year old started all three of Argentina’s group games at the World Cup but was substituted out due to discomfort against Poland. Tests revealed that he has a muscle overload with Lionel Scaloni also commenting on the situation.
Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni is expected to go with one of Ángel Correa or Papu Gómez to start in the Argentina attack. Paulo Dybala also has a chance to start.
