Surgery for Inamoto

Kyodo News Japan international Junichi Inamoto, who suffered a broken ankle in the national team's 1-1 draw away to England in midweek, will undergo surgery in the next few days, the Japan Football Association said Friday.

The Fulham midfielder sustained the injury in the dying stages of Tuesday's game in Manchester and is likely to be out of action for approximately three months.

That means he will miss the World Cup qualifier against India in Saitama next week and Japan's defense of the Asian Cup, which kicks off in China in July.
