Becks tears achilles, out of World Cup

14 Mar

David Beckham tore his achilles tendon playing for AC Milan today. The injury will keep him out of the World Cup and out of action all together for about six months. He was set to become the first English player to appear in four World Cups. It’s a big blow to England as well as they have already been hit hard with injuries/drama and Beckham can provide solid senior leadership for a team that is desperately lacking.  Also, Becks has been one of my faves for approximately forever and this summer’s World Cup was likely to be his last international competition, so it’s a sad day for him as he’s done everything possible to get into the England squad this summer.

With the rate that both England and the U.S. are suffering injuries, it will be a miracle for each team just to get 11 healthy players on the field in South Africa.
