LOL, all the haters on here. " REAL men play for NFL Teams" - whatever, bankrupt, big-mouth, working-class American. Keep talking. I'll bet your redneck ass wish you could have voted Bush in for a 3rd. term just to tank the great ol' U.S. of A another $13 trillion in debt. You're the laughing stock of the entire planet. Becks gets paid hundreds of millions of $'s. How does THAT compare with your NFL Players, Mr. Know-it-all? Yeah, I thought so. Keep talking while these immigrants (like: Arnie, Jackman and Becks, and the Mexican population doing jobs 'Americans are 'too proud' to do' --- yeah, keep talking. Thx. for the chuckle.

All these "injuries" are covering up the fact that his glory days are over. No shame in retiring.

I have to chime in and agree, Soccer is THE GAYEST sport out there. Where else is part of the strategy PRETENDING you’re hurt in order to draw a penalty? Some guy barely touches you and you go down and roll around on the grass like a little girl. In hockey that’s called diving and the players on the other team have a way to deal with Nancy boys like that...they smoke them with a nice open ice check and then watch the idiot do the funky chicken on the ice for a few minutes...you’ll think twice about try that crap again. I hockey a guy a take a big hit, loose a few chicklets take a few stitches and still not miss a shift..that my friends is a MAN’s sport not this soccer crap. As well all you losers who cry about how popular it is..SO WHAT, since when does popularity mean quality? Hey the Spice Girls were popular all over the world too. I guess they’re in the same league as the Beatles if you go by that analogy. It’s popular because it’s played by people that can’t afford much more than a little ball in order to provide entertainment. Half the people that love this sport can’t even afford shoes for themselves so what does that say about the sport?

I AM CANADIAN!

Horrible injury. He'll recover fine, but he definitely won't be playing soccer for a while. Also, losing him on the World Cup team won't hurt the Brits at all. Maybe even a little addition by subtraction. David has been past his prime for a while now.

Money down the drain. How much did they pay this dude to play over here? What has he done since he came? How much did his presence bring to increase the popularity of the sport here? What a waste!
However on a more humanistic level, wishing him a speedy recovery.

Come on. Real men play NFL football? Didn't they just do a study that a full game of NFL is only 11 minutes of actual play? Ooooooo 11 minutes of playing a game!!!! Yeah right. The only real true sport with real men is Rugby. Non-stop playing and no padding (like those pansies in the NFL wear). Twice the strength of NFL players and twice the cardio of soccer players.

SOCCER IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SPORT ON THIS PLANET THATS WHY IS THE MOST POPULAR, WHO SAYS THAT ALL SPORTS SHOULD BE ABOUT BREAKING EACTH OTHERS NOSES AND ARMS FOR NO REASON AT ALL , SOCCER IS VERY TECHNICAL AND DIFFICULT TO PLAY AT A PROFETIONAL LEVEL, THATS WHY SOCCER PLAYERS ARE IN WAY BETTER PHYSICAL SHAPE THAN BASEBALL AND NFL PLAYERS ,JUST COMPARE SOME FAT @SS AMERICAN BASSBALL PLAYERS BODY TO BECKHAMS OR CRISTIANO RONALDO , DUMB AMERICANS
