SAO PAULO (AP) — Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella says Enzo Perez is likely to replace injured winger Angel di Maria in the World Cup semifinal against the Netherlands.

Sabella didn't give his lineup for the game at Itaquerao Stadium but said Tuesday it is "very probable" that Perez will come in for Di Maria, as he did in the quarterfinal win over Belgium.

Real Madrid's Di Maria limped out in the 33rd minute against the Belgians with a right thigh injury. The team says he might recover in time for Sunday's World Cup final, if Argentina makes it.

Sabella said defender Marcos Rojo was also in contention to start the semifinal after serving a suspension. Striker Sergio Aguero will likely be on the bench as he returns from injury.
