Eintracht Frankfurt announced on their website Friday that midfielder Ricardo Clark is expected to miss four weeks as he recovers from a broken cheekbone.
Clark broke his left cheekbone in training on Friday morning, and after an evaluation from team doctors he will undergo surgery in Frankfurt on Monday, with the estimated four weeks on the sidelines to recover.
Beginning this week, Yanks Abroad will publish a weekly recap of American players eligible for US youth national teams. Players listed under U-23 are eligible for the 2012 Olympics, U-20s are eligible for the 2011 U-20 World Cup, and the U-18s are eligible for the 2013 U-20 World Cup.
Like always, some players will play up if they have the ability to do so; many players on the current U-20 team will be strong candidates for the U-23 Olympic team.
