Costa Rica’s Alvaro Saborio to miss World Cup
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) — Costa Rica forward Alvaro Saborio will miss the World Cup after a breaking a bone in his right foot.
Coach Jorge Luis Pinto told a news conference that Saborio was injured during a training session Thursday.
Pinto says “we have to accept that Alvaro won’t be in the World Cup.”
Team physician Dr. Alejandro Ramirez says the 32-year-old Real Salt Lake forward has a broken metatarsal and will need to keep his foot immobile for at least a month.
Saborio has scored 32 goals in 93 international appearances.
