Ticos coach Jorge Luis Pinto told a news conference that Saborio was injured during a training session Thursday.
Team physician Dr. Alejandro Ramirez says the 32-year-old Real Salt Lake forward has a broken metatarsal and will need to keep his foot immobile for at least a month.
Pinto says ''we have to accept that Alvaro won't be in the World Cup.''
Real Lake Sake said Saborio will be sidelined three-to-four months. He has 32 goals in 93 international appearances.
