‘Thigh injury’ Di Maria, selection for the final… Will it be different from 8 years ago?

 Angel Di Maria (Juventus), who was absent from the World Cup final eight years ago, finally appeared in the World Cup final.

Argentina announced its starting list ahead of the 2022 Qatar World Cup final match against France at the Lusail Stadium in Lusail, Qatar on the 18th (Korean time).

Argentina, which defeated Australia, the Netherlands and Croatia in the tournament, is aiming for the World Cup title for the first time in 36 years against the ‘defending champion’ France.

Argentina included the best players in the national team, including the ‘god of football’ Lionel Messi (PSG), in the starting list, and Di Maria was included in the starting list, which attracted the attention of fans.

Di María, who was one of the most creative midfielders in the world in his prime, was included in the final World Cup roster in Qatar and started in all three group matches, but suffered a thigh injury in the final game against Poland and was substituted during the match.

Fortunately, the injury was only minor, but Di Maria only played a short time as a substitute in extra time in the second half of extra time against Croatia in the quarterfinals of the World Cup. He was left off the starting list for all three matches of the tournament. 토토

While Di Maria’s physical condition and condition are unknown, as his return match from the start is none other than the World Cup final, fans supporting Argentina are growing insecure.

Di María suffered a hamstring injury in the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and missed the remainder of the World Cup.

Due to the absence of Di Maria, who played for Real Madrid at the time, Argentina lost to Germany in the World Cup final and remained in second place.

Attention is focusing on whether Di María, who is finally on the stage of the World Cup final after eight years, will be able to wash away the pain of World Cup runner-up in Brazil by giving Argentina the championship trophy.
