Madrid: Real Madrid says goalkeeper Iker Casillas has broken a bone in his left hand.

The Spain international hurt his hand in a Copa del Rey quarterfinal at Valencia on Wednesday, when teammate Alvaro Arbeloa kicked him while clearing a loose ball in the area. Casillas immediately called for the team doctors before leaving the pitch in obvious pain.

The Spanish club says Casillas will be evaluated by a specialist later Thursday to "decide what treatment to seek."
