The Tottenham player expressed his sadness on his Twitter account just minutes after the announcement of his injury was made.

"Very sad, i will miss the final because of a hamstring injury," dos Santos tweeted. "Now I will have to recover and support my teammates on Saturday."

He will also miss Mexico's friendly game against United States on August 15 at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.
