David Beckham reveals injury agony

Crocked England star David Beckham has spoken for the first time about the injury that ended his World Cup dream.

The 34-year-old was injured in the closing minutes of AC Milan's game against Chievo Verona on March 14, and was almost immediately ruled out of England's plans for the World Cup.

Asked by ABC's The View about the moment the injury happened, Beckham said: "It was like being hit by a hockey puck.

"I thought someone was behind me and had kicked me. I looked round, obviously there was no one there.

"And then I saw my foot. It was just hanging. And then I felt down there and there was a hole and I knew straight away what I'd done.

"It's frustrating. It's obviously disappointing because I've been working for the last couple of years to get into the English squad to make the World Cup and then something like this happens.

"It's life, it happens, I move on. It gives me time to spend with my family and that's the silver lining."

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid ace is now targeting a return to full fitness by November.

He added: "I won't be running for another three months, so I will be playing again in, probably, November.

"My mentality is to kind of push it and get moving and running and soon as possible. But it's an injury that has to take time to heal."

The delay means he will be gone from Major League Soccer this season unless the Los Angeles Galaxy reach the playoffs.
