"That the injury has come at this moment is very unfortunate and sad because Carlos has been very much looking forward to his new club," said Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic. "We wish him all the best with his recovery and look forward to meeting him soon."

Salcedo's Frankfurt and Mexico team-mate Marco Fabian helped his side recover from a 1-0 deficit to win the game 2-1, setting up their equalising goal in Sochi. El Tri are now into the semi-finals at the tournament after defeating hosts Russia 2-1 on Saturday.
