Coach Frank Yallop believes David Beckham only has an even chance of making his Los Angeles Galaxy debut against Chelsea on Saturday.

A troublesome ankle injury picked up on England duty against Estonia in June and aggravated in his final appearance for Real Madrid prevented Beckham from taking a full part in his first training session for his new club on Monday.

Speaking in front of a watching Beckham after the Galaxy´s 3-0 defeat to Tigres UANL, Yallop said: "It´s probably 50-50. He´s still sore but we´re hoping it´s just going to ease off a little bit so he´ll be okay."
