Noble and Adrian send messages to West Ham teammate Manuel Lanzini

Argentina forward Manuel Lanzini's World Cup dreams are over following an injury he suffered while training with the national team.

The World Cup finals kick off in Russian Federation next week and the 25-year-old West Ham United player was expected to be a starter in manager Jorge Sampaoli's squad.

West Ham midfielder Lanzini was ruled out of the tournament after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in training on Friday.

The severity of the injury suggests the Argentine will miss the opening weeks of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign although it yet to be confirmed.

The attacking midfielder, who earns £70,000 per week as salary according to The Daily Star, is a very important player, and West Ham will hope that he returns to action as soon as possible.

Perez, 32, who made his Argentina debut in 2009, was initially in the Albiceleste's 35-man provisional squad released by coach Jorge Sampaoli for the 2018 World Cup before he was dropped. An injury like this could also see him out for a portion of the EPL season with West Ham.

The loss of Lanzini will not end chances of Argentina going far, but they lose a good assist/goal threat to compliment Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain.

Inter Milan captain and striker Mauro Icardi is expected to be called up as Lanzini's replacement.
