Beckham's World Cup dream over after Achilles tear

David Beckham's dream of playing in a fourth World Cup looks to be over after he tore his left Achilles tendon in AC Milan's 1-0 win over Chievo on Sunday.

He left his hotel in Milan on crutches on Monday morning and is scheduled to arrive in Finland in the afternoon to undergo surgery at the Turku clinic of specialist surgeon Dr Sakari Orava.
