U.S. national team forward Jozy Altidore is set to miss a month of action after having toe-nail surgery, Spanish club Xerez announce on Thursday.

Altidore had yet to make an appearance for the Spanish Second Division leaders, but will now have to wait another month after having a corrective procedure to address a foot ailment that has plagued him for some time.

Altidore's toe nails have given him problems before.

He was benched for a Red Bulls match last year after being forced to miss practice sessions following toe-nail issues associated with a bad pedicure.

The most recent toe-nail issues didn't stop Altidore from scoring four goals in the U.S. national team's last two World Cup qualifiers, including a hat-trick vs. Trinidad & Tobago.

With Altidore expected to miss a month, the surgery should not prevent Altidore from taking part in June's World Cup qualifiers or the Confederations Cup with the U.S. national team.
