Beckham set to miss World Cup: Capello


LONDON: England manager Fabio Capello confirmed on Monday that David Beckham is expected to miss the World Cup after suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon.

The 34-year-old former England captain was hurt in AC Milan's 1-0 Serie A win over Chievo at the San Siro on Sunday night.

Capello said he had spoken to the midfielder and it was now likely he would miss the showpiece event in South Africa this summer.

"We have to wait for the results of the scan, but it looks like he is out of the World Cup," said Capello.

"I spoke with him after the game on Sunday night to offer my support.

"David is a great professional and has worked very hard to be ready for the World Cup, so missing it will be a big blow."

Beckham pulled up in pain during Milan's Serie A game without coming into contact with anyone else and limped distraught to the sidelines for treatment.

The multi-millionaire will be operated on at the sports injury clinic of Mehilaeinen hospital in Turku, Finland on Monday afternoon, orthopedic surgeon Sakari Orava told AFP.
