David Beckham will have the final say on whether he makes his Major League Soccer debut on Thursday night, says Los Angeles Galaxy head coach Frank Yallop.

If Beckham manages to finally shake off the ankle injury that has curtailed his involvement in the Galaxy side to 12 minutes of a July 21 friendly against Chelsea, he has a chance of another late substitute´s appearance on Thursday night when his new side take on DC United at RFK Stadium in Washington DC.

"The ultimate decision will come down to David," Yallop said. "We´ll see how he is. I´m not going to put him out there to re-injure it. We´ll put him out there when he is fit and ready to go. He´s getting close. We won´t force it. He knows his own body and he´ll let us know if he is ready to go."
