Mexico's Vela facing 10 days on sidelines

19 June 2010 19:10

JOHANNESBURG (AFP) - Mexican striker Carlos Vela faces up to ten days on the sidelines and race to get fit for a potential second-round meeting with Argentina as he struggles with the hamstring injury he picked up in the win over France.

Saturday's training session involved a brief jog and some warm-up exercises but the Arsenal man will miss Tuesday's match against Uruguay.

"Doctors say he could be back in ten days," a Mexican delegation source told AFP.

Vela had to go off after half an hour of Thursday's 2-0 win over France at Polokwane after feeling a sharp pain.

The win left Mexico on the verge of qualifying for the knockout stage but if they do not beat the Uruguayans they would come second in Group A and likely then face the Argentines, who beat them in the second round in 2006.
