Marquez suffers calf injury setback

MADRID - Barcelona's Mexican defender Rafael Marquez will be out of action for up to 15 days with a left calf injury, the European champions said on their website on Thursday.

Marquez has just returned to the team after surgery for a knee injury he sustained in the Champions League semi-final first-leg against Chelsea on April 28. He will miss the rest of Barcelona's tour of the United States.

He will be a doubt for Mexico's World Cup qualifier against the United States on August 12 and the Spanish Super Cup first leg against Athletic Bilbao on August 16.
