Sato out for two months with shoulder injury

HIROSHIMA (Kyodo) Sanfrecce Hiroshima striker Hisato Sato will be sidelined for two months after undergoing surgery to repair a dislocated right shoulder, the J. League first-division club announced Friday.

Sato was injured during Wednesday's second leg of the Nabisco Cup quarterfinals. The Japanese international scored one and set up another in Hiroshima's 2-1 victory over Gamba Osaka.

Sanfrecce won on away goals after a 2-2 aggregate and will face Shimizu S-Pulse in the semifinals later this month.
