England DON'T need Beckham, he was probably going to be a benchwarmer, since they have dozens of better players and they are all younger and probably worth more than he does now.

just to name a few: Wayne Rooney, Theo Walcott, Lennon, Ashely Cole, Lampard... etc etc

and those of you saying "soccer" sucks and dumb stuff like that. I bet you couldn't score a goal with 4 defenders trying to take the ball away from you, ANYONE can grab a ball with their HANDS and run from 200 pound men xD

OWNED!!!

This is bad news for England, Even though before this injury he wasn't assured a spot on the ENG NT anyway, but the English have always had problems with broken feet near World Cups, so it is a big deal, for instance Ashley Cole has recently suffered a setback.
As for the person who questioned "do people care?"
Yes, there are people who do care, I, in fact care because he was an athelete who I grew up watching in the 90's just like how people loved watching Michael Jordan play in the 90's. I've witnessed three world cups that he's appeared in, and unfortunately this injury set him back, and he can't appear in this years world cup, which could of been his fourth appearance. The World Cup is a big deal. Maybe not in your country, but everywhere around the world, it's a big deal.
