Say it isn't so! 

Famously shirtless soccer star David Beckham injured his Achilles tendon in a match Sunday, putting his chances of playing in the World Cup on the line, according to the New York Times

Following the incident, the handsome husband of Victoria Beckham reportedly limped off the field and shouted, "It's broken! It's broken!" as he was carried off the turf on a stretcher.

The injury could not only stop Beckham from playing in the World Cup but also put the 34-year-old's entire soccer career in jeopardy, according to reports.

His underwear modeling career, however, should be just fine.

Speedy recovery, Becks!
