Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo have travelled to China with Argentina for their friendly against Brazil this weekend.
The Manchester United duo are heading into this international break in fantastic form but it will be a physically demanding two weeks, starting with the Superclasico de las Americas against Brazil which will be anything but friendly.
From a United perspective, the fitness of Di Maria is going to be the main concern over the next two weeks. He wasn’t yet fully match fit before going on international duty United’s staff will be keeping a close eye on his progress.
As for Rojo, he’ll more than likely have to revert back to his left-back position for Argentina which is a shame because he has played so much better at centre-back for United.

After Di Maria’s blistering form with United, all eyes will be on the Argentinian to see he if can replicate that form against Brazil.
The duo will have to do more travelling than any United player in this international break which could certainly influence their fitness after returning to Carrington.
