Mexico midfielder Andres Guardado is almost certain to miss the CONCACAF Cup against the United States next month after PSV announced he would miss 4-6 weeks with ankle ligament damage. 

With less than three weeks until Mexico takes on the USA at the Rose Bowl, Guardado seems to be an extreme longshot to face Jurgen Klinsmann's side in a match that will determine which team will represent CONCACAF at the 2017 Confederations Cup. 

Guardado suffered the injury in PSV’s Champions League victory over Manchester United last week. The 28-year-old midfielder had to be subbed off in the second half after a tough challenge from Chris Smalling. 

The injury is a blow for Ricardo Ferretti's side after Guardado scored six times at the 2015 Gold Cup, helping Mexico to the title and winning the tournament's Golden Ball as the top player in the process.
