Scotland, Sunderland GK Gordon `out until October'

The Scottish Football Association says Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon is set to be out until at least October after breaking his arm.
Gordon underwent an operation on Thursday after fracturing his bone during preseason training for English Premier League club Sunderland.
Sunderland only said Gordon would miss the start of the season in August, but the SFA went further, announcing that the 27-year-old 'keeper "is expected to miss the first four games" of Scotland's qualification campaign for the 2012 European Championship.
The fourth qualifier is against Spain on Oct. 12.
Scotland coach Craig Levein says it's "very disappointing to lose a goalkeeper of Craig's caliber for such a significant part of the campaign."
