Beckham not to take part in the match in Dallas because of soreness in his injured left ankle

Los Angeles Galaxy coach Frank Yallop said David Beckham is not going to take part in Tuesday's SuperLiga game at FC Dallas because of his left ankle injury. Beckham had been recovering but was still not right and it was decided on Monday morning that he is not going to join the team.

"The swelling's not bad," Yallop said. "It's just the soreness from the scar tissue, to be honest, that's in there right now and they're just working it out. And it's just there's a lot to work out and they're just getting through and getting the ankle more stable."

Yallop said that "uncomfortable is more the word than pain."

Beckham watched from the sideline Saturday night at the Los Angeles Coliseum as Chivas defeated the Galaxy 2-1. He also missed the Galaxy's 2-1 victory over Pachuca in its SuperLiga opener a week ago.

He has played just 16 minutes, including four minutes of stoppage time, in one exhibition game since joining the Galaxy on July 13.

Beckham turned the ankle on June 6 during England's 3-0 victory over Estonia. Yallop said Beckham played on painkillers in his last game with Real Madrid on June 17.

"I think it just basically stemmed from that. When you don't feel it, you know, you tend to swell up a little bit, and then he started to work on it right before he started to come back for us," the coach said. "He didn't feel any pain before, but then he started to work out on it and it kind of blew up and was getting really sore."

Yallop said the team hopes Beckham will be ready to play Sunday night, when he is scheduled to make his Major League Soccer debut at Toronto.
