Beckham out of Texas clash

David Beckham will not travel to Texas for tomorrow's SuperLiga game between the Los Angeles Galaxy and FC Dallas.

Beckham's troublesome ankle injury has not improved and the 32-year-old midfielder will remain in Los Angeles with the hope of being able to play against Toronto FC next Sunday - the game earmarked for his Major League Soccer debut.

"He will not be travelling to Dallas," Galaxy spokesman Patrick Donnelly said. "(Coach) Frank (Yallop) is looking to have him travel to Toronto, but it all depends on the health of his ankle."

Beckham has been receiving treatment daily on the problem - first suffered while playing for England on June 6 - since making his debut as a late substitute for the Galaxy against Chelsea nine days ago.

Beckham is yet to train with his team-mates and he has missed two previous SuperLiga games against Pachuca on July 24 and Chivas on Saturday, although he was named as a substitute for the latter game.

It was funny this morning. I live Yorkshire, over 5000 miles away from LA, but there was a kid walking down the street in the village this morning with an LA Galaxy shirt on with Beckham 23 on the back!! Beckham's world is a small world!
