Mexico captain Andrés Guardado has been ruled out for the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament due to a muscle tear injury.
The Real Betis man has been in camp with ‘El Tri’ in Los Angeles, California ahead of their last warm-up match against Nigeria on 4 July.
Unfortunately, Guardado suffered a muscle tear injury that will keep him out of action for about a month.
The former PSV star underwent a medical examination and after the results came back the coach of Mexico’s national team, Gerardo Martino, decided to leave him out of the friendly.
Guardado, 34, made his first appearance for Mexico in a friendly match against Hungary on 14 December 2005, four months after his first-team debut with Atlas.
The three-time CONCACAF Gold Cup winner was in devastating form for Real Betis last season.
