FC Cincinnati defender Ronald Matarrita is expected to miss at least six months after undergoing ankle surgery earlier this week, the club announced Friday.

Matarrita, 27, sustained the injury while competing for Costa Rica in its 1-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Canada on March 24. His recovery timeline would have him in line to return should Costa Rica advance to the final tournament in Qatar.

Matarrita has one goal and two assists in two matches this season with Cincinnati.

He has seven goals and 20 assists in 130 career MLS matches with New York City FC (2016-20) and Cincinnati.
