Midfielder Lee Chung-yong has been forced to make an early exit from the ongoing AFC Asian Cup in Australia, which wraps up in late January.
Lee sustained an injury when he was tackled heavily during a match against Oman last week.
The Korea Football Association said Tuesday that a CT scan at a hospital in Canberra revealed a hairline fracture on Lee's right tibia.
Lee will return to Korea on Wednesday and work on his recovery, as he was advised to rest for at least three weeks.
