Cameroon's Pierre Achille Webo had an operation on his right foot Tuesday and will be sidelined for up to four months.
Webo's injury is a blow to Cameroon ahead of Ghana 2008
The 26-year-old striker's injury is a blow to Cameroon with the African Nations Cup looming on the horizon.
Webo injured himself during his Spanish first division side Mallorca's goalless draw at home to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
He has scored twice for Mallorca in the Spanish league since he joined the team from Osasuna just before the start of the season.
The Cameroon international had only recently returned to action after surgery on the same metatarsal back in September.
