Mexico's Montes to miss World Cup due to leg injury

IANS 01 Jun 2014, 16:33:56 IST
Washington:  Luis Montes will not compete for Mexico at the World Cup in Brazil after suffering a serious leg fracture during a 3-1 victory over Ecuador in a friendly match.

Midfielder Montes had just scored the goal that put Mexico in front two minutes earlier Saturday when he collided with Ecuador's Segundo Castillo while vying for a loose ball, reports Xinhua.

It is a big blow for Mexico who are tuning up to the upcoming 2014 World Cup.

Mexico's next friendly match is against Bosnia-Herzegovina in Chicago Tuesday.
