CF Montreal forward Romell Quioto suffered a muscle tear that will see him miss at least three weeks of play, the Honduran national team announced on Tuesday.
According to this, the affected player is injured in a muscle in the right posterior region. As a result, the winger will miss his country’s three qualifying matches this month ahead of the 2022 Soccer World Cup.
In addition, his loss may complicate the task of the Montreal team, holder of the seventh rank of the Eastern Association of Major League Soccer (MLS). Head coach Wilfried Nancy’s squad will return to action by hosting the Philadelphia Union on October 16.
Quioto fell in the second half of Saturday’s game against Atlanta United FC. Ten minutes before he was sidelined, he had completed a brace to lead his team to a 2-1 win. The 30-year-old has scored eight goals in 17 MLS games this season.
