NEC Nijmegen ace Edgar Barreto faces up to a month out of action with a hamstring injury.

The Paraguayan midfielder was hurt while on international duty as he prepared for a World Cup qualifier against Venezuela.

But the 21-year-old pulled up in training ahead of the game and has strained his hamstring.

Dutch outfit NEC expect the youngster to be missing from their plans for between three and four weeks.

Barreto was coveted by Feyenoord in the summer and is highly rated by NEC, who are sure to feel the loss of the South American.
