Enzo Perez has been added to Argentina's World Cup squad as a replacement for Manuel Lanzini.

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

River Plate midfielder Perez, 32, has won 23 caps - including in the 2014 final, which they lost to Germany, reports BBC.

Argentina are in ‘group of death’ with Iceland - whom they play in their 16 June opener - as well as Nigeria and Croatia.
