Sabella unsure on Di Maria fitness
Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella admitted on Saturday that midfielder Angel di Maria's participation in Sunday's World Cup final against Germany remains in doubt due to injury.
"Today is a fundamental day to see," Sabella told his pre-game press conference at Rio de Janeiro's Maracana.
"He has improved, that is obvious. After training, we will know better. Just now I couldn't give you an answer."
Di Maria has not played since injuring his thigh in the first half of Argentina's 1-0 win over Belgium in the quarter-finals.
In the Real Madrid player's absence, Benfica's Enzo Perez deputised in midfield alongside Javier Mascherano and Lucas Biglia in the semi-final victory over the Netherlands.
