    PORTLAND, Oregon – Costa Rican international Rodney Wallace underwent successful surgery to repair a torn right anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and a non-displaced right tibial plateau fracture as well as a meniscectomy of his right knee, his club – the USA’s Portland Timbers – announced Thursday.

    The 25-year-old, who sustained the injuries in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference Championship against Real Salt Lake on November 24, is expected to be out five-seven months.

    In 2013, Wallace played in 27 games during the MLS regular season, establishing career highs with seven goals, including a club-best three game-winners, and six assists. He started all four of Portland’s MLS Cup Playoff matches and ranked among the league’s postseason leaders with two assists. 

    With Costa Rica, the former D.C. United player won the 2013 UNCAF Copa Centroamericana, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 semifinal win over El Salvador and starting in a 1-0 triumph over Honduras in the final.  The midfielder also played for the Ticos in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, where they reached the quarterfinals.
