Jose Francisco Torres was making plenty of headway for the U.S. national team, getting repeated chances to start under new coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

All of that progress has hit a bit of an obstacle, though, with the word that the midfielder will miss the remainder of Pachuca's Apertura season after suffering an injury to his fifth metatarsal, according to Pachuca's official Twitter feed.

The team stated that Torres, a regular starter for Pachuca, had surgery Wednesday morning to repair the injury and is set for at least two months on the sidelines should his recovery timetable hold.

Torres had also recently emerged as a regular starter for the national team, getting the nod in the three friendlies since the Gold Cup, starting against Mexico, Costa Rica and Belgium.

What do you think of this development? How did you think Torres fared in his recent appearances with the national team? Who do you think should get a chance in his place?

  1. Yes, technically they play the same position (if we’re just talking about midfield), but I was posting about the different roles Torres and Adu play, which from your post it sounds like you agree with. So I’m not sure about the purpose of your reply?
