David's World Cup Hopes Dashed With Torn Achilles Tendon

David Beckham's latest game with AC Milan, a 1-0 win against Chievo Verona, ended with an injury last night when he was taken off the field due to a torn Achilles tendon. He was reportedly in tears afterward in the locker room, saying, "It's broken. It's broken." The damage comes at a particularly bad time for David, considering his hopes of joining the English team in the World Cup for what would have been a record-setting fourth stint. He's off to Finland today to consult with doctors, who say there's a slight glimmer of hope that he may make a relatively swift recovery depending on the exact location and severity of the tear. David, meanwhile, went on his website to thank fans for all their support.
