Young Mexican forward Carlos Vela has trained with the medical staff of the Mexican national team in the morning at Waterstone College in Johannesburg. He was not able to train with the Mexican Squad and had just a little walking/jogging program with the physical staff.
“El Bombardero” has suffered a muscle injury in his right leg on last Thursday against France, as Mexico head coach Javier Aguirre replaced him with winger Pablo Barrera after 31 minutes.
Carlos had a very good start into this match as skipper Rafael Marquez delivered a fantastic long ball into the run of the 21 years old, but Vela has fired the ball with his left foot just over the bar.
The Injury counts him out definitely for the Uruguay match and it is possible that Carlos will be out for about 10 days, but if the El-Tri comes into the next round, Carlitos will rejoin his team-mates for the last 16 encounter.
