Fans of the England Team will be happy to learn that David Beckham has fouled out of Real Madrid play for the rest of the season. As such, he should be available to take the pitch when his national squad takes on the US Men's Team at Soldier Field next weekend. This will be the fifth match and fifth European opponent the U.S. has played in Chicago since 1992; the most recent was against Poland last July. The game, scheduled for May 28th at 2pm, will be broadcast on ESPN, and tickets are available via Ticketmaster.
Update (23 May 2005): Well, with the dust settled, it seems there will be no Becks, after all. Even though he can't play, Madrid want him to stick around to train, meaning he'll not be in America at the weekend. Bummer.
