Torres out with hamstring injury
Pachuca coach Guillermo Rivarola says American midfielder Jose
Francisco Torres has an injured right hamstring and could be
sidelined for a few weeks.
Torres sustained the injury against Queretaro in the second
round of league matches, but the strain took its toll last weekend
and forced the U.S. national player to come out during the second
half against Atlante.
Rivarola told reporters on Thursday that the player, known as
“El Gringo,” will be missed, particularly because his play at
midfield has been improving. Torres was on the roster for the last
two U.S. World Cup qualifies and is expected to be in the mix for a
spot on the U.S. team for this year’s tournament in South
