Barca keeper Valdes out for seven months

Barcelona and Spain keeper Victor Valdes will miss the World Cup after being ruled out of action for seven months following knee surgery. The 32-year-old suffered anterior cruciate ligament damage in last week's 3-0 win over Celta Vigo.

"The player has been operated on by Dr Ulrich Boenisch and Ricard Pruna in Augsberg, Germany," a Barcelona statement read.

"The operation was a success and he will now be out for approximately seven months."
