Funes Mori was stretchered off with a torn meniscus in the first half of Argentina’s World Cup qualifier against Bolivia in La Paz earlier this week.

The centre-back is unlikely to return from the injury before the end of Everton’s Premier League campaign.

«It has been confirmed that the defender suffered a torn meniscus in Argentina’s 2-0 defeat to Bolivia on Tuesday evening,» Everton said in a statement on Thursday.
