Brazilian football star Juninho ruled out for Sydney FC

Juninho could spend more than a month on the sidelines for Sydney FC after suffering a shoulder injury in his second A-League soccer match.

Team officials said Tuesday that scans showed Juninho had torn ligaments in his shoulder. Coach Branko Culina said the news was "devastating" and said it could take up to two months for Juninho to regain full fitness.

Juninho, who has played 50 internationals for Brazil, including seven matches when the team won the 2002 World Cup, sustained the injury midway through the second half of Sydney's weekend match against Adelaide United as he attempted to avoid a fallen player.

The teams played to a 2-2 draw, following Sydney FC's loss in the opening round.
