South Africa FIFA World Cup 2010

The talk in football land is David Breckman’s injury caused by his snapped Achilles tendon in a Sunday match between AC Milan and Chievo at the San Siro stadium in Milan, Italy and his non-appearance in a fourth successive World Cup finals for England.
The 34-year old was aiming to be the first English player to appear in four World Cups but the injury has curtailed such hopes of that happening. No one can be more disappointed, saddened, helpless, in pain perhaps angry than Beckman the man himself but he has a resilent and fighting spirit.
