Cameroon's Pierre Achille Webo had an operation on his right foot Tuesday and will be sidelined for up to four months. This is bad news for the Cameroon squad ahead of next month's African Cup of Nations.
Webo was injured during a game with his Spanish club side Real Mallorca, a goalless draw at home to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
He has scored twice for Mallorca in the Spanish league since he joined the team from Osasuna just before the start of the season.
The Cameroon international had only recently returned to action after surgery on the same metatarsal back in September.
Bad luck. So who will Cameroon use in his place to partner with Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o? Lots of questions to be answered by one of the favorites for the Cup.
