Sadly, David Beckham’s latest Achilles injury will force him to miss the World Cup in South Africa. And at 34 years old, the injuries Beckham has endured during his soccer career are starting to pile up.
Beckham has had an amazing soccer career though, just look at the teams he’s played for: Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, PSG, and the LA Galaxy. You couldn’t ask for a better career in terms of the playing for the top soccer clubs in the world.
Oh, there was also that time that his hair got caught in his eyes when he was crossing the ball. While that might not be an injury, it did have some pain in his eye for a brief moment.
Just kidding around about the hair, but there were certainly a lot of times that Beckham spend brushing his hair during game.
Still though, while Beckham takes a lot of abuse for maybe the celebrity type stuff he does off the field, he will go down in soccer history as one of the best passers of the ball and certainly one of the best crossers of the ball the game has ever scene.
Here’s video of when David Beckham tore his achillies tendon while playing for AC Milan. Doesn’t look like much at first but you can tell Beckham is in a great deal of pain and knows he can’t continue playing on it.
