David Beckham Gets Injured; Will Likely Miss World Cup
David Beckham's World Cup dream appears almost to be over due to a ruptured Achilles tendon. Becks suffered an agonizing injury Sunday and collapsed in the final minutes of Milan's match with Chievo.

According to the BBC, AC Milan coach Leonardo told reporters, "Beckham's injury makes us feel terrible. He understood immediately that he had torn his [left] Achilles tendon."

Becks is going to see a specialist in Finland Monday to determine just how bad the injury is. If he needs to undergo surgery, he'll do it as soon as Tuesday.

Becks, who has played in three previous World Cups, will be out for at least three months if he has to undergo surgery.

"He is understandably upset but wants to thank everyone who has sent message of support. He hopes to make a swift recovery," his rep, Simon Oliveira, says.

Get well soon Becks!
