Aron Johannsson needs ankle surgery

Aron Johannsson will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks after surgery to repair his ankle.

U.S. forward Aron Johannsson needs ankle surgery after the World Cup.

His club, AZ Alkmaar in the Netherlands, said on their official website on Friday that Johannsson will be out 6-8 weeks.

Johannsson played in the Americans' World cup opener against Ghana as a substitute but could not make much of an impact. He did not play in their last three games.

The 23-year-old Johannsson scored 26 goals last season. Born in Alabama to Icelandic parents, Johannsson moved to Iceland when he was 3 and appeared in eight qualifiers for the country for the 2012 European Under-21 Championship. He asked FIFA to change his affiliation to the U.S. last summer.

The Americans were eliminated by Belgium on Tuesday.
