Saturday, August 4, 2007
On June 6, he sprained his left ankle in England's game against Estonia. Four days later, Beckham pulled several ligaments while he played for Real Madrid in the team's final game of the season on June 17. At the time of the accident, he was on three injections of painkillers. Teammate Landon Donovan said about Beckham's ankle, "When he got here, it was like a balloon."
Beckham was greeted by about 20 video cameras and 100 media at a news conference in Toronto. He handled all 13 questions in stride, deflecting fan criticism by stating that he would be with the Galaxy for five more years.
