Feeling Minnesota

Pachuca goalkeeper Miguel Calero was operated successfully on Sunday at the University of Minnesota Medical Center. Pachuca's skipper had deep vein thrombosis, a type of blood-clot ailment.

Calero is expected to be out for at least two months but might be out quite a bit longer. According to the report, Calero is likely to remain in Minnesota for the next several days and return to Pachuca afterward to begin his rehabilitation.

Is there any chance that he will be able to play in the World Club Championship? Will Pachuca risk bringing him back for that tournament?

Two months from now would put him in position to participate in that tournament. At this point, it's probably too early to tell if he'll play at all the rest of this year. Stuff like that, you really don't want to rush back from especially given the recent heart-related deaths in Europe.
