Cannon's broken ankle gives job back to Busch

[MLS] There won’t be a starting goalkeeper controversy regarding the Earthquakes; a broken ankle suffered Tuesday in training by Joe Cannon took care of that.

Cannon, who had been benched in favor of Jon Busch, was told last Friday he was back in the starting lineup, and he posted a courageous shutout Saturday as San Jose beat Kansas City, 1-0. Busch, released by Chicago in late March and picked up by the Quakes, had started the previous six games and played well until he batted a cross into his own net to give Colorado a 1-0 win Aug. 7.

Surgery to repair Cannon's damaged left ankle is scheduled for Wednesday. The team estimates he will be sidelined six to eight weeks. The Quakes (7-6-5) have 12 more games to play before their regular season concludes Oct. 24.

Coach Frank Yallop said Cannon’s foot got caught underneath him while going through a routine shot-stopping drill.

The team will use Alex Horwath, an emergency goalkeeper from the league’s pool, as Busch’s backup when it hosts the Galaxy Saturday at Buck Shaw Stadium.

Brazilian attacker Geovanni, whose acquisition was announced Monday, went through a second day of training with the Quakes on Tuesday.

His availability to face the Galaxy this weekend has not been confirmed.
