Di Maria pulled out of training with Argentina on Saturday and is now considered doubtful to play in the World Cup final against Germany on Sunday, the Daily Mail reports.

Di Maria initially suffered his thigh injury during the quarterfinals against Belgium and he was initially ruled out of the tournament. He apparently had gotten close enough to full fitness to participate in Sunday's finale until Saturday's setback. He has yet to be officially ruled out, but he'll surely be limited if he's able to play at all.

Di Maria scored in the 46th minute of Saturday's 2-0 win over Malaga.

The goal was Di Maria's first Liga score this season, although he did score twice in a Champions League match against Copenhagen back on October 2. He's been fairly active lately and will look to keep that going Wednesday against Juventus in a Champions League match before the season's first Clasico next Saturday.

Di Maria recorded an assist during Saturday's 3-2 win over Levante.

A nice performance for Di Maria after scoring two goals against Copenhagen in the Champions League on Tuesday. He's had a difficult time finding a consistent spot in the Starting XI but after two solid performances, he could see more time on the pitch moving forward.

Di Maria came on for the first time in two months for Real Madrid and scored a beautiful curling goal to mark his return in his team's 4-0 victory.

Di Maria put in a great performance with a goal and two assists before being subbed off in Real Madrid's 6-2 victory over Sevilla.

An inspiring performance as he dedicated it to his late father in law. The young Argentine has settled in at Real and with him and Ronaldo on the wings, Madrid has a lot of speed on the flanks.
