He will miss six matches, which coincide with 2017's Gold Cup, which Mexico will be participating in.

Mexico coach, Juan Carlos Osorio has apologised for an outburst directed at officials during the recent Confederations Cup match in Russian Federation after receiving a six-game ban by FIFA.

Osorio was suspended for using "insulting words toward the match officials while displaying an aggressive attitude toward them" when Mexico weren't awarded a penalty during the match against Portugal, an incident that saw him thrown out from the game. The level of talent on El Salvador is miles away from what Mexico has to offer but the game could still be an interesting one in San Diego this Sunday. If Mexico reach the final Osorio will have served the ban at the tournament.

Federation Internationale de Football Association said that Osorio "used insulting words towards the match officials while displaying an aggressive attitude towards them".

Osorio has been punished by Federation Internationale de Football Association after his reaction following Mexico's 2-1 extra time defeat to Portugal in the third-place play-off in Russia.

Osorio gave the A team a break after the Confederations Cup and named a B team for the Gold Cup, its status as JVs further cemented last weekend when forward Alan Pulido, the biggest name on the roster, broke his arm in a tune-up against Paraguay in Seattle.

Ranked 103rd in the world by FIFA, El Salvador are the minnows of a group that also contains Curacao and Jamaica.
