ZARAGOZA, Spain (AP) — Zaragoza striker Ikechukwu Uche is expected to be out for up to six months after undergoing a knee operation, the Spanish club says.

Uche underwent the arthroscopic surgery on Thursday on torn ligaments in the same left knee he had previously injured and had forced him to miss most of last season.

Uche missed out on the World Cup due to the previous injury and will be unavailable for Nigeria's friendly against South Korea on Aug. 11.

Zaragoza opens the season at Deportivo La Coruna on Aug. 29.
