(Newser) – David Beckham ruptured his left Achilles tendon in an AC Milan match last night, derailing his dream of becoming the first soccer player to compete in four World Cups. The UK superstar, who also plays for the Los Angeles Galaxy, will undergo surgery in Finland this week. Beckham, 34, was reduced to tears, telling his teammates "It's broken, it's broken" before he left the pitch on a stretcher, Sky Sports reports.
