David Beckham injured his left ankle Monday July 16th, thus leaving doubt on his American debut with the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday July 21st.
David Beckham left his US soccer debut for the Los Angeles Galaxy, supposed to happen Saturday July 21st, in doubt because of an injured left ankle Monday July 16th.
The soccer stud was unable to participate in an intrasquad scrimmage on Monday because his left ankle, which was injured early last month while playing for England in a Euro 2008 qualifying game, remained swollen and sore, thus leaving doubt on his weekend US debut.
"We want to get him on the field as quickly as possible but we don't want to put him in any danger," Galaxy coach Frank Gallop said on Beckham's condition. "There is always a possibility that he won't play because of his injury but we're never going to force him to play. If he's ready to play, he'll play."
Beckham himself, who's scheduled to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy in the match against Chelsea at L.A.'s Home Depot Center, claimed it is still possible for him to play, saying "Hopefully I'll be all right."
