[BRAZIL 2014] Real Salt Lake striker Alvaro Saborio, one of just three holdovers from Costa Rica's 2006 World Cup roster, fractured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot at the Ticos' practice Thursday morning that will keep him out of the 2014 World Cup.

Saborio will miss 3-4 months due to the injury. He'll return to Salt Lake City from Costa Rica’s camp in the next few days to be further evaluated by Real Salt Lake’s medical staff.
 
Saborio scored eight times in the 2014 World Cup qualifying cycle though he wasn't necessarily expected to start for the Ticos, who face England, Italy and Uruguay in Brazil. He has scored 32 goals in 93 international matches. Costa Rica's other main strikers are Joel Campbell and Bryan Ruiz.

World Cup 2014: Friendlies

Injury Updates ...

CHUY UPDATE. Mexico goalkeeper Jesus Corona was diagnosed with a concussion suffered in El Tri's 3-0 win over Israel Wednesday night, but he traveled to the United States for Mexico's remaining warm-up games, beginning with a game Saturday against Ecuador at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Corona had to be carried off the field after taking a blow to the head in a collision with teammate Francisco Rodriguez. The 33-year-old keeper is in a battle with Guillermo Ochoa for the starting job.

KOREA'S KIM SIDELINED. Mainz defender Park Joo-ho was called into South Korea's 23-player World Cup squad after starting left back Kim Jin-su was ruled out because of an ankle ligament injury.

Kim, 21, was recently injured playing for Japanese club Albirex Niigata and surgery was delayed to see if he could recover in time for South Korea's opener against Russia on June 17, the last day any time starts the tournament.

South Korea got better news on the condition of central defender Hong Jeong-ho, who injured his ankle in the 1-0 loss to Tunisia on Wednesday. It was diagnosed as a bruise.
