London, Mar.16 (ANI): An upset England mid-fielder David Beckham has vowed to bounce back from his Achilles injury, which has ruled him out of this year's World Cup in South Africa.
"I am upset but want to thank everyone for their messages of support. I hope to make a swift and full recovery," The Mirror quoted the 34-year-old, as saying on his web site.
Meanwhile, Dr Sakari Orava, who operated on Becks at the Mehilainen Hospital in Helsinki, has said that there is no chance of Beckham making it to the World Cup.
When asked, Orava said: "No, I don't think so. Healing takes a long time. Beckham's Achilles tendon was torn completely off, and we had to put together the two parts. He will probably be discharged on Wednesday. The operation was successful. Everything is fine."
Becks picked up the injury while playing for AC Milan on Sunday.
Becks hobbled off his private jet on crutches as he touched down at Turku airport yesterday. He was then whisked to the hospital in a SUV.
Posh decided to make the 16-hour, 5,400-mile trip from LA after speaking to her distraught husband.
The 35-year-old scrapped a host of work engagements to be there.
A source said: "The entire family is absolutely broken by this.
Posh is expected to stay in Finland for 48 hours before returning to LA to finish a commercial shoot.
She will then fly to Milan with children Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, to Milan for the Easter reunion.
England boss Fabio Capello gave the stricken star a boost by declaring he would not close the door on his international career.
He even hinted that he could be handed a place in the squad for the 2012 Euro qualifiers. (ANI)
