Manchester United star Javier Hernandez is to miss Mexico's crucial World Cup play-off match against New Zealand next month.
The striker picked up a yellow card during his country's 2-1 defeat to Costa Rica last night, meaning he will now be suspended for the first-leg fixture.
Hernandez has not had the best of times so far this season - with his first team opportunities at United limited, and his form for Mexico under scrutiny.
The otherwise known as 'Chicharito' missed one of the sitters of the season last night as well - to further add to his troubles.
Mexico finished in fourth place in the six team group, and missed out on one of the three automatic qualification spots.
The play-off against Oceania qualification winners New Zealand will come as a welcome consolation prize, with the CONCACAF nation as the favourites to progress to Brazil next summer.
Hernandez will be available for the away second-leg however, but must now return to Manchester to concentrate on claiming a starting role in the United side ahead of their Premier League fixture against Southampton at Old Trafford on Saturday.
