The Costa Rica keeper looks set for a race against time to face Tottenham next week after suffering a muscle strain in World Cup qualifying.

Keylor Navas could be sidelined for Real Madrid's next two matches after suffering a thigh muscle injury on international duty with Costa Rica.

Suffered problem in World Cup qualifer against Honduras

Goalkeeper Navas picked up the problem in Sunday's 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw with Honduras, in which a last-gasp Kendall Waston equaliser saw Los Ticos secure qualification for Russia 2018.

In a statement, national team doctor Alejandro Ramírez confirmed that Navas - who has now been released from the Costa Rica squad - has strained "the vastus medialis and part of the adductor in his right thigh".

Navas celebrates Costa Rica's qualification for the World Cup on Sunday.

Keylor may struggle to make next week's Spurs clash

The 30-year-old is set to miss Real's LaLiga clash away to Getafe on Saturday, and could also have to sit out next Tuesday's Champions League group-stage match at home to Tottenham Hotspur.

Navas joins Gareth Bale, Dani Carvajal and Mateo Kovacic in Los Blancos' sickbay, although Karim Benzema, Marcelo and Theo Hernández have recently returned to training.
