SHANGHAI, May 23 (Xinhua) -- Naturalized Chinese player Luo Guofu will be out of action for two or three weeks due to a muscular injury, the Chinese Football Association(CFA) confirmed on Saturday.

Aloisio Goncalves, whose Chinese name is Luo Guofu, joined his Guangzhou Evergrande teammate Ai Kesen and Beijing Guoan midfielder Li Ke to become the third naturalized player to wear Team Dragon's jersey this month.

According to the CFA, the Brazilian-born striker picked up a muscular injury in his right leg during Thursday's training match between Team China and Shanghai SIPG .

"The scan results indicated that Luo needs two or three weeks to recover," read a statement of CFA.

"After negotiations with the player and his club, Luo will continue his training and accompany us for the next game against Shanghai Shenhua," it added. Enditem
