Coates will go under the knife in Sao Paulo, Brazil, after sustaining the injury in the last minutes of the friendly match with Japan in Miyagi last week.

Initially, it appeared the 22-year-old's injury was not serious, but it has since been confirmed that he tore an anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Part of Coates' recovery will be undertaken in Montevideo, where his family lives.

"In the medical tests, we found out that the player had a torn ligament in his right knee so we have decided to take him to surgery. It will be done on Friday in Sao Paulo", a Uruguayan FA statement said.

Coates moved to Anfield two summers ago from Nacional in his homeland but has only made 12 Premier League appearances to date.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
