David Beckham Tears Achilles; Abs Thankfully Fine

by at . Comments

Soccer star David Beckham is expected to miss the World Cup after apparently tearing his Achilles’ tendon Sunday in A.C. Milan’s 1-0 victory over Chievo Verona.

Beckham pulled up unchallenged in the center circle, hopped on his right leg, fell to the turf and shouted “It’s broken, it’s broken!” as he was carried off in tears.

A Worried Fan

He is expected to fly to Finland today to have surgery.

“He felt the muscle begin to come up, which is a typical symptom when you break an Achilles’ tendon,” Milan Coach Leonardo told Sky Sports. “It's a real blow.”

David Beckham's Achilles is torn, but the rest of that bod is okay.

The loss was also a blow for England's World Cup hopes, but likely not a devastating one since Beckham was not even assured a place on Fabio Capello’s roster.

England's national team is strongest in midfield, where David plays. Losing Wayne Rooney or Steven Gerrard would be far, far more troubling to their chances.

Serious soccer analysis aside, the injury could put his entire soccer career in peril, but on the plus side, that'd leave much more time for underwear modeling.

You gotta look on the bright side, right? You don't need two functional Achilles tendons to have a functional David Beckham shirtless. Might as well retire now!

ACL and Achilles tendon are not the same.. This blog is brutal for mistakes like this. Dont you do any backround research before posting a story? What about proof reading as well? How does website expect to be taken seriously if it thinks the ACL and the Achilles tendon are the same
damn thing. Sheesh.
