Mexican defender Carlos Salcedo has been ruled out of the remainder of the Confederations Cup in Russia, after suffering a shoulder injury in Wednesday's 2-1 victory over New Zealand.

The 23-year-old came off second-best in an aerial tussle with Kiwi striker Chris Wood in the first half and landed awkwardly.

The Mexican Football Federation confirmed the news in a statement, with Salcedo, who recently joined German club Eintracht Frankfurt on loan from Guadalajara, to return home.

Mexico's come-from-behind victory means that they need only a draw from their final Group A game against Russia on Saturday to secure a semi-final place.
