The Premier League side says on its Twitter account that the left-sided Oviedo will remain in the hospital over the weekend, and have surgery on Monday. The injury occurred in the 14th minute of the fourth-round match on Saturday.
Several Everton players turned away in horror when they saw the severity of Oviedo's injury and immediately called for assistance. He was carried off on a stretcher six minutes later to applause from all sides of the stadium.
''The incident with Bryan affected everyone,'' Everton boss Roberto Martinez said. ''Those injuries give you a bad taste.''
''We need to give him as much support as we can as he had a terrific season. I have been so impressed with his level in different positions. He's a really important player and we want to make sure everything goes well.''
Oviedo is a regular for Costa Rica, which plays Uruguay, Italy and England in Group D in the World Cup.
