Argentina midfielder Angel Di Maria has been ruled out of the World Cup semifinal against the Netherlands with a thigh injury while striker Sergio Aguero has been declared fit to play after recovering from a similar problem.

Martinez said Aguero, who sustained a similar injury 10 days ago, had recovered in an "excellent" way.
