David Beckham Offered Consolation Prize At World Cup Opening Ceremony

The World Cups organizers have been considering how to give injured David Beckham a role in the event this year as the soccer star sits out with a torn achilles tendon. The committee’s chief executive Danny Jordaan told the Associated Press that he will approach Beckham about taking part in the opening ceremony at the South African Soccer City Stadium in June. Word is that Beckham is already planning to travel to South Africa with England’s Squad and expected to have some involvement in promoting England’s bid to host the 2018 tournament.

We’ll have to see if he still needs the crutches he’s was using to leave Fogo de Chao in Los Angeles yesterday.
