Soccer superstar David Beckham is unable to tell his young sons he was dropped from the England team last month (AUG06). Beckham has three boys - Brooklyn, ROMEO and CRUZ - with his ex-Spice Girls wife Victoria Beckham. However, he is dreading breaking the boys' hearts by telling them the bad news. He says, "The boys watch the games with me and they say, 'Why are you not playing today Daddy?' "I said, 'Well, I want to spend more time with you.' And they are like, 'Oh, we are so happy.'"
