    Mexico’s Montes to miss Ivory Coast encounter

    MEXICO CITY – The Mexican Football Federation announced Monday that midfielder Luis Montes has been ruled out of Wednesday’s friendly against the Ivory Coast.

     The 27-year-old did not play in Leon’s Liga MX game against Morelia on Saturday due to a suspected left-leg problem and is awaiting an update on his condition.

    Montes received a call-up for the upcoming international after some outstanding performances in the recently completed CONCACAF Gold Cup, where he netted two goals. The former Pachuca star scored in Mexico’s 3-1 group stage win over Martinique and in a 2-1 semifinal loss to Panama.

    Head coach Jose Manuel de la Torre will not fill the open roster space.

    The domestic-based players were scheduled to travel today to New Jersey, where they will link-up with the members of the squad arriving from Europe.`
