Fernandez Lobbe: Serious knee injury
Argentina vice-captain Juan Fernandez Lobbe will take no further part in the World Cup after injuring his knee against Scotland.
Fernandez Lobbe was forced off the field during the Pumas' thrilling 13-12 win over the Scots on Sunday and worst fears have now been confirmed.
The flanker has torn his left cruciate ligament and faces up to six months on the sidelines as a result. It not is not yet known if the Toulon man will remain with the squad or return home to have surgery.
Coach Santiago Phelan has yet to decide whether or not to call for a replacement.
