Injury doubts: David Beckham

David Beckham admitted last night that he is battling to be fit for Sunday's Major League Soccer final in America.

The 34-year-old LA Galaxy star hasn't trained since suffering bruising to his ankle in last weekend's play-off victory and only took off a foot brace yesterday.

But he is still confident of starting the final against Real Salt Lake - his first chance of winning a trophy since joining Galaxy more than two years ago.

'I haven't trained since the game the other day so it's been a bit of a worry,' he said.

'I had bad bone bruising. I have done a little running now, which is important. It was the first time I'd actually been able to wear trainers.

'It's a lot easier now. At my age you go into games and nothing is perfect. You always have a niggling injury of some sort.'
