Beckham in Finland for surgery
Or so it seems. A torn achilles tendon on Sunday will almost certainly keep David Beckham out of the 2010 World Cup. It is due to commence in June, so his surgeon is hopeful there is a slight chance he will heal in time. He was scheduled to have surgery in Finland and issued this comment:
"I am upset but [want] to thank everyone for their messages of support," Beckham said in a statement posted on his personal Web site before his arrival. "I hope to make a swift and full recovery."
It seems Beckham doesn't just bend afterall.
