    David Beckham's dream of playing in a fourth World Cup looks to be over after he tore his left Achilles tendon in AC Milan's 1-0 win over Chievo on Sunday.

    The 34-year-old England midfielder will fly to Finland on Monday for surgery.

    The finals start in June but Beckham's agent Simon Oliveira told the BBC: "He is upset should he miss the World Cup but is quite a positive individual.

    "David is a quick healer and we just have to wait for the scan and the surgery, if that goes ahead on Monday."

    Beckham, who is on loan at Milan from Los Angeles Galaxy, was unchallenged when he suffered the injury and hobbled off before being carried away on a stretcher.

    He hoped to be part of England's World Cup squad but that now seems unlikely - and there has even been speculation that Beckham's career could be over.

    Apparently he's had the operation and it was a success but he wont recover in time for the World Cup. He has enough money now, I dont know why he doesnt retire but I guess with a wife like posh Spice he can never have enough money!

    England to get knocked out at the quarter final stage AGAIN.

    Expect Beckham's injury and Terry's affair to be the excuses this time.

    Apparently Mr Cappello has asked David to travel to South Africa with the team. If these roumers are true then the decision indicates to me anyway he would have been picked if he hadn’t been injured.

    Beckham's injury won't really hurt England's chances (which I don't rate highly anyway). He was a top class player back in the day but now he's getting old and its probably best he retires with some dignity intact.

    Although I am sure he would have been picked by Capello if he was healthy.

    And Rio Ferdinand is ruled out of the World Cup after Emile Heskey accidently injured him today in the first practice session.

    Why take Heskey? He's not exactly going to set the pitch alight unless someone gives him some oil and a box of matches.
