Suazo ruled out of the Mundial de Clubes
Suazo twisted one of his ankles during the match against Kashiwa Reysol on the 11th and was ruled out to play for the fifth place match in the tournament against Esperance of Tunisia. Monterrey came into the match as a favorite against Kashiwa, which led to overtime after a 1-1 draw in the 93rd minute, and ultimately a penalty shootout resulting in a 1(4)-1(3) loss for Monterrey. Although Monterrey had much more scoring opportunities in comparison to Kashiwa, Kashiwa ended up being the better team when the penalties came around. Officials say that Suazo must be at least two weeks inactive due his sprained ankle, which ends his participation in the Mundial de Clubes.
