PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Portland Timbers announced that Bright Dike (DEE-kay) will have surgery Monday to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The 26-year-old striker sustained the injury in Tuesday's preseason match against Seattle.

Dike, who represents Nigeria internationally, saw considerable action in the second half of last season, scoring five goals in 12 games.

The Timbers open the regular season March 3 against New York.
