If you were hoping to see Maurice Edu in action for the U.S. national team this summer, then you will be disappointed to know that the midfielder will be sidelined for an extended period of time as he recovers from a knee injury.

Edu, who suffered the knee injury in Rangers' season finale against Dundee United, is scheduled to miss at least three months after undergoing successful knee surgery to fix damaged ligaments on Wednesday.

The injury not only leaves Edu out for the start of Rangers' next season, but also for the United States' busy summer, which includes the Confederations Cup, Gold Cup and the World Cup qualifier in Azteca Stadium against Mexico on Aug 12.

What do you think about Edu's injury? Should he leave the physical SPL? Is this injury going to hurt his chances of making the World Cup roster in 2010?
