Soccer: Beckham says recovery is 2 months behind schedule

Associated Press

LONDON England midfielder David Beckham says he won't be able to play again until November, meaning he'll miss the entire MLS season for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham underwent surgery in March after rupturing his Achilles' tendon while on loan at AC Milan. He had previously said he expected to be back by September.

But Beckham said in a video posted Monday on the ABC's website that he won't be running for another three months, and he'll probably be playing again in November.

The next time he is likely to be ready to play for England would be in a European Championship qualifier against Wales on March 26, 2011.
