Edson Alvarez of Mexico exits the pitch with the help of the medical team during the CONMEBOL Copa America 2024 Group B match between Mexico and Jamaica at NRG Stadium on June 22, 2024 in Houston, Texas.

Mexico captain Edson Álvarez was forced off with an injury in the first half of his team's Copa América win over Jamaica on Saturday at Houston's NRG Stadium.

After sprinting back during a counter from Jamaica, the West Ham midfielder suddenly hit the ground in pain, clutching his left hamstring.

Álvarez had to be helped off the field in obvious pain and was visibly distraught at his match and potentially his tournament coming to an end after less than 30 minutes.

Monterrey's Luis Romo was chosen to replace Álvarez by Mexico manager Jaime "Jimmy" Lozano, with the score tied at 0-0.

He has also played more minutes for Mexico than any other player since Lozano took charge last year.

Mexico will next play Venezuela, who beat Ecuador 2-1 in the day's other Group B match at Inglewood, California, on Wednesday.
