Soccer: Beckham to miss next game in the MLS, ankle still hurts

Los Angeles Galaxy new star, David Backham, has played three matches in the last six days, including one in Europe. That's why the coach decided to rest him for the next game against Colorado Rapids.

Indeed, the British player will not fly with the Galaxy to Denver on Saturday and will miss the team's match against the Colorado Rapids on Sunday.

According to official sources, coach Frank Yallop had made the decision not to take Beckham on the road after the England midfielder had played three full encounters in six days, including back-to-back matches on two continents on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Indeed, David Beckham's suspect left ankle was visibly swollen after the 3-0 loss to Chivas USA on Thursday night.

"We must focus on healing David's injury," Alexi Lalas said. The Galaxy president is really worried about Beck's ankle, and don't want to take any chance.
