Beckham back in training with LA

David Beckham has resumed training but is unlikely to make his MLS debut for LA Galaxy in Toronto on Sunday.

The 32-year-old former England captain could only run as he continued his recovery from an ankle injury.

"Unless there's a drastic change I won't be playing," Beckham said at a Saturday media conference in the city.

"Running straight forward is not a problem but turning corners is still a problem and I don't think I'll be involved in the game."

Beckham, 32, even threw into doubt his participation in the Galaxy's next game,this Thursday against DC United.

"It would be nice to play some part of the game in Washington but I'll just have to keep my fingers' crossed," he added.

"A week to 10 days is what I'm looking at."

Since moving to the USA last month Beckham has managed just 13 minutes action, in a friendly against Chelsea.

US international Landon Donovan said the condition of Beckham's ankle is improving.

"When he got here, it was like a balloon," he said. "You kind of looked at it and said 'you're going to play on that?'

"When he played in the Chelsea game, it was almost a miracle at that point. He shouldn't have been playing probably. But he's getting a lot better."
