Beckham to miss 3d straight game

CARSON, Calif. -- David Beckham will miss his third straight game when the Los Angeles Galaxy play at FC Dallas tonight in the SuperLiga tournament, raising doubt about whether he'll make his Major League Soccer debut this weekend at Toronto.

"He's not out here, so he's obviously not going to Dallas with us," Galaxy coach Frank Yallop said during practice yesterday.

Beckham has yet to train with the Galaxy because of an injured left ankle. He has been limited to a token appearance at a public training session July 16 and 16 minutes in a 1-0 exhibition loss to Chelsea July 21.

Beckham missed SuperLiga games against Pachuca July 24 and Chivas Saturday.
