MADRID, Spain -- Real Madrid says Spain midfielder Xabi Alonso has broken a bone in his right foot.
The Spanish club did not indicate how long it expects Alonso to be sidelined.
Alonso underwent surgery in the off-season on his back and missed Madrid's preseason and its Spanish league opener last Sunday.
Alonso's physical problems also ruled him out of the Confederations Cup.
Spain faces a World Cup qualifier with Finland on Sept. 6 as it seeks to defend its world title in Brazil.
