London:

Manchester United has said that the England captain David Beckham had broken the longest metatarsal bone in his left foot and would be out of action for six to eight weeks. An eight-week lay-off would rule the Reds star out of England's three World Cup group games against Sweden, Argentina and Nigeria. But a six-week period would mean he should be fit in time for England's opening game against Sweden on June 2. "I have spoken to the Club this morning. I understand that the prognosis is slightly better than it was last night - about six weeks," Football Association chief Executive Adam Crozier said. "We're still hopeful about the World Cup. I'm hopeful that he can turn out again for Manchester United because that should be his number one priority," he said. The star midfielder was back at the training ground today with his foot in plaster to start his rehabilitation. (PTI)
