Bad news, footy fans - we may be seeing even less of David Beckham in action! The LA Galaxy's most famous face sprained his kneee in the thirtieth minute of Wednesday night's SuperLiga trophy final against Pachuca after tripping over the ball, necessitating that the superstar be pulled before halftime. The rest of the Galaxy gave a heroic effort battling back to tie the game at one goal apiece, but ultimately succumbed when the game went to penalty kicks.
ESPN reports that doctors are estimating that Beckham's injury may take up to six weeks to fully heal. Hopefully David's able to beat that prognosis and recover even more quickly - although we certainly wouldn't fault him for simply enjoying six weeks off with his wife and kids!
Injuries may have plagued Beckham during his whole career, but don't go assuming that he's made of glass - after all, prima donnas rarely win roles on England's World Cup squad as crucial as David's was in 2002!
