Australia defender Moore diagnosed with cancer

Australia defender Craig Moore has undergone surgery for testicular cancer, his management said on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old former Glasgow Rangers and Newcastle United player was diagnosed with cancer last week and underwent the procedure on Tuesday.

He will miss the World Cup qualifier in Bahrain on Nov. 19.

Moore, who now plays for Queensland Roar in the Australian A-League, has been told by his urologist the outlook was good.

Socceroos coach Pim Verbeek said: "It's always a shock to hear of a diagnosis like this but I am encouraged by the prognosis from the medical practitioner.

"I speak for the entire team in wishing him a speedy recovery," he added.
