After David Beckham's long and distinguished soccer career ends on an artificial turf field in northwestern France, his life promises to be perhaps even more glamorous than it already has been.
Kiss goodbye to soccer as we know it.
He pulled off one of soccer's greatest historic upsets. Now Otto Rehhagel has been handed a task equally challenging: to make Germany popular again in crisis-hit Greece.
Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has two broken bones in his back and likely will miss the Americans' World Cup qualifiers against Costa Rica and Mexico this month.

Former South African President Nelson Mandela underwent more medical tests Monday in a military hospital as the public and journalists outside asked what, if anything, is wrong with the health of the 94-year-old anti-apartheid icon?
Inside a Catholic church that once served as a major rallying point for anti-apartheid activists, the image of a gray-suited Nelson Mandela appears in a stained-glass window that also features angels and the cross.

And he salvaged the honor of Europe's strikers, by making sure these Euros didn't set a new record for goal-scoring sterility. In short, self-proclaimed genius Mario Balotelli had an outstanding night to finally match his nickname, Super Mario.
Still not pretty to watch, still just as effective.
With the end of the group stage, Euro 2012 is more than two-thirds complete _ 24 matches have been played and just seven are left, culminating with the July 1 final in Kiev.
