MILAN: Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi will miss Argentina's upcoming international friendlies because of a knee injury, his Serie A club confirmed on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old picked up the injury against Torino at the weekend and will train separately for four or five days. But he will not travel to Russia for Saturday's friendly against the 2018 World Cup hosts and a game on Tuesday against Nigeria.

"Mauro Icardi this morning underwent tests," the club said in a statement. "There is no tear for the Nerazzurri striker, but there is evidence of severe bruising with associated inflammation on the front of his right knee.

"He'll have physiotherapy and separate work for four to five days, before returning to Luciano Spalletti's squad."
