Luis Montes to miss World Cup after horror injury in friendly leaves Mexico ‘praying’ for the midfielder, Luis Montes’ World Cup dream is dead and buried after the Mexico midfielder suffered a suspected leg fracture against Ecuador on Saturday night. The 28-year-old got his side going in the 3-1 win with a stunning strike on 33 minutes, only for his fortunes to change horrifically two minutes later. Montes was stretchered off after a coming together with Ecuador’s Segundo Castillo, leaving coach Miguel Herrera to admit the team ‘prayed for him’.
