Update – The Mirror has an article about how Becks retun to action for the La Galaxy will allow him to compete for a place in the squad that will play the Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia on November 21.
As previously posted, Becks is now targetting Thursday’s game against the New York Red Bulls for a return to action. Coach Yallop said, “Hopefully we get some type of minutes out of him on Thursday, but we’ve got to wait and see. And then, if we can manage to make it into the playoffs, David will be ready to go. That’s exciting.” Fingers crossed!
Thanks to Galaxy23 here is an interesting article that mentions that David Beckham gives his per diem entitlement when he is on the road to the less well paid players, which is a really nice gesture, story here.
