World Cup 2010: Milan & England's David Beckham Out For At Least Four Months - Surgeon Sakari Orava

Sakari Orava, the man who is tasked with fixing David Beckham's suspected broken Achilles tendon, has said he will not be back for at least four months, dashing his World Cup hopes.
Beckham injured himself during Milan's 1-0 win over Chievo on Sunday night and the severity was clear from the start as he immediately signalled to the bench.
The midfielder is reportedly flying to Finland to go under the knife and Orava, a specialist surgeon, has explained his suspicions regarding the injury.
"To start kicking the ball again it will take around three months. To get to his maximum it will take a month more. That's three to four months before he can play a mini-match," said the surgeon as reported by La Repubblica.
England's first game of World Cup 2010 is against USA in Rustenburg on June 12, and thus the chances of Beckham taking part in the tournament are slim.
