Kawasaki Frontale striker Yu Kobayashi, who has pulled out of Japan’s friendlies against Honduras and Australia with a left-knee injury, will be out of action for three to four weeks, the J. League club said Thursday.

Kobayashi, who made his international debut in last month’s 1-0 home win over Jamaica, suffered the injury during training with Japan on Tuesday.
