- Lisandro injures foot
- Unlikely to play opener against Ecuador
- Could feature against Bolivia
WHAT HAPPENED? In the second half of Manchester United's loss against Arsenal, the defender was replaced by Harry Maguire. After the game, Martinez, 25, immediately boarded a flight out of the UK to meet up with his Argentina teammates for the next international break, leaving Erik ten Hag unaware of the extent of his injury. Providing an update on Martinezs injury situation, the United boss said in his press conference that the center-back is unlikely to play against Ecuador on Thursday night but could be ready to play against Bolivia next Tuesday.
